The present work was conducted to evaluate the proximate contents, phytochemical constituents and to screen the methanolic extract of the stem of Cissus quadrangularis for the presence of active compounds. Methanol was the solvent used for the soxhlet extraction. The dry matter content and the total ash, crude protein, crude fat, crude fibre, acid insoluble ash, carbohydrate content were determined. The chemical composition of methanolic extract of Cissus quadrangularis revealed the presence of alkaloids,, saponins, phytosterols, phenolic compounds, flavanoids, terpenoids, protein, amino acids, fixed oils, fats, tannins and cardiac glycosides. This work could be further useful to the structural elucidation and further quantification of bioactive compounds.
