Canthium parviflorum Lamk( Rubiaceae) is a shrubby and woody plant found throughout the Western Ghats. Canthium parviflorum have reported to possess a number of pharmacological activities such as antioxidant, wound healing activity and antitumor acitivity. D-mannitol, phenolic acid, phenolic compounds, carbohydrates, proteins were found from Canthium parviflorum. The current study was carried out to analyze the active constituents present in the leaf of Canthium parviflorum. Twenty two constituents in ethanolic extracts were identified by GC-MS analysis. D-Mannitol and Squalene which was present in this plant considered to have anticancer activity.
