In this study the phytochemical composition of Murrayakoenigii twigs in the ethanol and chloroform extracts were identified. We also evaluated the invitro-antioxidant activity by DPPH assay, FRAP assay,H2O2 assay and anti-inflammatory activity by protein denaturation assay of ethanolic extracts. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, amino acids, carbohydrates, tannins, steroids and phytosterols in the ethanol and chloroform extracts. The ethanolic extracts of Murrayakoenigii twigs also express significant amount of antioxidant and anti inflammatory activity.
