The main aim of the study is to investigate the presence of phytoconstituents in the seeds of Majidea zanguebarica along with FT-IR analysis. Phytochemical screening in methanolic and chloroform extracts revealed positive results for alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, tannins, saponins, fatty acids, carbohydrates and cardio glycosides. The FT- IR analysis of the methanolic extract evidenced that the presence of alcohols, phenols, carboxylic acids, amines, nitro compounds, alkyl halides, esters, ethers, aromatic and aliphatic compounds. The frequency (cm-1) of Majidea zanguebarica ranges from 3745.76 to 532.35 which shows strong, medium and weak bonds.
