The Spectroanalytical analysis and physiochemical extraction of bark of Millettia ovalifolia yielded phytochemicals, which included four new source compounds comprising of flavonoid characterized as 3,7-Dihydroxy-2-phenyl-4H-chromen-4-one, cinnamic acids, characterized as (E)-Ethyl 13-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl) acrylate, (E)-Methyl 3-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl) acrylate and N-Ethylacetamide. These isolated compounds were characterized by using advance modern Spectro analytical techniques such as UV, IR, 1D, 2D NMR and mass spectrometry. The isolated compounds were further studies for their antibacterial potency and docking studies.
