Abstract: The methanolic extract of plant Cassia alata was prepared by using soxhlet apparatus. FTIR and GCMS analysis were done to this plant extract to find out the bioactive phytocompounds. The FTIR results of this plant extract showed 21 peaks indicate the presence of the bioactive compounds such as sulfates, sulfonamides, sulfones, sulfonyl chlorides, sulfates, sulfonamides, alkanes, aromatic, aromatic, alkenes, ester, alkenes, ketenes, isocyanates, isothiocyanates, acetylene, nitrile, phosphine, phosphine, aldehyde, alkane, amide, alcohol and alcohol. The GCMS results showed 13 peaks. The  retention time (RT) of all these thirteen peaks indicate the presence of functional group such as 1-Butanol, 3-methyl-1,6-Anhydro-.beta.-D-glucopyranose (levoglucosan), 3-O-Methyl-d-glucose, Oxirane, 10-Methyl-E-11-tridecen-1-ol propionate, l-(+)-Ascorbic acid 2,6-dihexadecanoate, (R)-(-)-14-Methyl-8-hexadecyn-1-ol, Oleic Acid , Vitamin E acetate and 1,2-Bis(trimethylsilyl) benzene.
