Seaweeds are potential marine renewable assets for food, feed, and medicine since ancient times. Considering the latent characteristics of seaweeds, the prevailing has a look at the goal which has to assess the phytochemical composition of methanol extract of underexploited marine red alga Laurencia papillosa. The phytochemical analyses of L. papillosa confirmed the presence of nine phytochemicals amongst which glycosides had been discovered to be the very best with a value of 125.57 ± 3.52 mg/g dry wt, wherein because the saponins were found to be lesser in amount with the value of 2.68 ± 1.97 mg/g dry wt. The function of fluorescence emission and pharmacognosical capabilities which include the total ash content and the extractive values of the red alga L. papillosa analyzed. The results affirm that the chosen seaweed has energetic phytochemical content which will be a capacity supply for antimicrobial, antioxidant, and cytotoxic interest and the methanol extract of L. papillosa will be explored for its robust pharmacological activities in the drug development by the pharmaceuticals.
