Abstract: Portulaca Oleracea L. (PO) or Purslane is an annual grassy plant that is distributed in many parts of the world, especially the tropical and subtropical areas. PO has some pharmacological properties such as analgesic, antibacterial, skeletal muscle-relaxant, wound healing, anti-inflammatory. Portulaca Oleracea is globlely used both as vegetable and as herb for medical & therapeutic purpose. Hence, the need to investigate its phytonutrients. The areal part of Portulaca Oleracea were harvested air dried and powdered for this study. Chemical test were carried out on the aqueous extract & the powdered constituent to determine the phytoconstituent using standard procedure. The presence of Alkaloid specimen tannin, flavonoid, cardiacglyacoside, terpenoid , steroid, phlobatannin, protin, starch are determined. This reading Authenticates its use in drug production and other therapies and to inhance further usage research studies The pharmacognostic evaluation of plant material carried out In wich the morphological characteristic of plant was studied. The present study phytochemical testes were carried out and the presence of various chemical constituents in plant extracts was determined by preliminary phytochemical screening.
