Abstract: Canarium schweinfurthii (Atile) leaves from Lamingo Area of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State were screened for the presence of chemically active compounds by standard methods. The results revealed the presence of the following compounds: Saponins, Tannins, Cardiac glycoside, Steroids and Flavonoid. Alkaloid and anthraquinone were not detected from the leave extract. We recommend further research work on this plant leaves for possible use as a source of raw material for industrial and medical science utilization.
