Abstract: The present study was aimed to study the phytochemical properties of Murraya koenigii plant. Previous literature has revealed a vast array of pharmacological activities of this plant. This study was dome to investigate upon the production of flavonoids by using heavy metals as elicitors in suspension cultures. There was an increase in flavonoid content with an increase in heavy metal concentration.
