Syzygium polyanthum Wight (SP) leaf and Myrmecodia pendans (MP) have been widely reported to have beneficial pharmacological activites. To obtain consistent and reliable results from preparations derived from medicinal plants, preparation including standardization and extraction process is important. The present study aims to determine the yields of standardization and phytochemical screening of (SP) and MP (MP) simplisia. Standardization of SP and MP showed as follows: total water : 8.61.13% and 9.2 1.13%, total water soluble simplicia 10.2 0.57% and 35.4 7.8%, total ethanol soluble simplicia 25.6 1.15% and 12.3 1.52% and total ash 0.981.01% and 15.2 2.69% respectively. Both simplicia consisted of alkaloid, tannin, saponin, triterpene/steroid, flavonoid and glicosyde.
