Abstract—Acute toxicity and phytochemical studies of ethanol leaf extract of Moringa oleifera were analysed. The phytochemical analyses of the ethanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaf showed the presence of tannins, carbohydrates, saponins, glycosides, reducing sugars, terpenoids, steroids, flavonoids and alkaloids. Phytochemicals such as resins, proteins and fat oils were not detected. The LD 50 of the ethanol leaf extract in mice was found to be less than 5000mg/kg body weight.

Index Terms—Moringa oleifera , Phytochemicals, LD 50 , body weights, Flavonoids and reducing sugars
