Cassytha filiformis (Common name: love-vine, Vernacular name: Kothan) is a creeper plant in the family Lauraceae, traditionally used in treatment of several diseases (cancers, human birthing issues, hypertension, pains and fever). The present study was carried out to investigate the phytochemical profile of whole plant (except root) of Cassytha filiformis.L. The powder of the cassytha filiformis.L was successively extracted with acetone, aqueous, benzene, chloroform, cyclohexane, ethanol, ethyl acetate and methanol. Phytochemical analysis shows the presence of carbohydrates, glycosides, proteins, amino acids, phenolic compounds, tannins, steroids, anthraquinone, anthocyanin, flavonoid, and alkaloid. The result of the study could be useful to description and foundation of monograph of the plant.

Keywords: Cassytha filiformis, Flavonoid, Phytochemical, Anthocyanin, Alkaloids and Glycosides.
