Nature has been a wellspring of therapeutic for a vast number of years and a great number of present day drugs have been separated from plant resources. It has been evaluated that natural prescriptions serve around 80% of the total population wellbeing requirement for many individuals throughout the world. Cissus quadrangularis a member of the family Vitaceae, Cardiospermum halicacabum and Dodonea viscosa members of the family Sapindaceae are well known for its utilization in the treatment of skin contaminations, blockage, piles, lack of health, weight loss, ant-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and bone crack healing. In the present study, based on GC-MS methanolic extract of stem and leaf of these three plants showed and identified fifteen major compounds with pharmacological activities. The FT-IR analysis showed similar functional groups of compounds related their medicinal properties such as Bone healing and wound healing activities.

Key words: C. quadrangularis, C. halicacabum, D. viscosa, GC-MS and FT-IR, Bone healing
