Phytochemical properties of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Chromolaena odorata were assayed using standard techniques. Plant materials (leaves) were collected from Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Nigeria compound. The leaves were appropriately prepared and the extraction of crude ingredients was done using ethanol and hot water respectively under standard laboratory conditions. Phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of bioactive flavonoids, polyphenols, saponins and tannins. The presence of bioactive substances may be responsible for the antifungal activities of the extract. This study therefore underscores the fact that C. odorata can be a viable and cheap source for antifungal formulations. The results from this study will help immensely in the fight against microorganisms ...
