Background: Importance of traditional medicinal plants are increasing day by day due to presence of numerous bioactive chemicals in their extracts. Murraya koenigii and Phyllanthus amarus are common plants that are used as folk medicine since ancient time. Method: Phytochemical screening and FTIR analysis of ethanolic extract of Murraya koenigii and Phyllanthus amarus were carried out. Results: Phytochemical analysis revealed presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, saponins, tannin and flavonoids in both the extracts. Total 13 spectral peaks and 12 spectral peaks were observed in FTIR analysis of Murraya koenigii and Phyllanthus amarus respectively. Conclusion: These results will help to understand whether preliminary phytochemical analysis and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy be used as an authentication tool or not.
