The present study was conducted to determine the yield of extract quantitatively for the crude bark extracts of Cassia fistula, family Fabaceae is a high value medicinal plant collected from Osmania University, Hyderabad, Telangana State. The basis for the present study is that the bark of this plant is used by Gondu tribes of Adilabad District, Telangana State, India to treat hyperthyroidism in human beings. The author has significantly documented the ethnobotanical relation of present plant under study. Since the advent of modern drug treatments, traditional medicine has greatly receded in occidental societies. Only a limited number of medicinal plants have received detailed scientific scrutiny thereby prompting the World Health Organization to recommend that this area be comprehensively investigated. The bark extracts were prepared by using Ethanol, Methanol, Acetone, Chloroform, Petroleum ether and also in water. The yields of extract were calculated as weight/weight in all the six solvents and are studied for eight phytochemical compounds. The present study revealed the presence of Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Total Phenols, Carbohydrates, Total Tannins, Saponins, Terpenoids, Total Glycosides in varying content and clearly shown that the more number of phytochemical compounds are maximum soluble in ethanol solvent.
