The roots of Homonoia riparia Lour. (Local
name- Kyauk- kant- nanthar) were selected for this
research. Phytochemical screening of the crude extracts
was done by means of standard method. The sample
consists of alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, terpenes,
glycosides, reducing sugars, polyphenols, saponins and
phenolic compounds respectively. Some organic
compounds (1- 5) could be isolated from the roots of
Homonoia riparia using column chromatography.
Finally, the functional groups of the isolated compounds
were determined by Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-
