Tropical Agarwood (Aquilaria) is in danger of extinction in the wild due to illegal logging. It’s resin (Gaharu) is used for the production of highly valued incense throughout Asia. The methanolic crude extracts of Agarwood leaves before and after inoculation process extracted by using maceration into methanol as solvent were screened for Phytoconstituents, the extracts revealed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins, flavonoids and terpenoids. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS…
