In view of increasing threat of Covid-19 and due to the lack of any effective medicines, we have performed in silico studies of various SARS-CoV-2 proteins such as 6LU7, 6YWL, 2GTB, 6W02, 6W63 with active phytochemicals of some common medicinal plants such as aloevera, asafoetida, fennel, clove, cardamom, tamarind, coriander, camomile, and bryophyllum. Molecular docking was perfomed using UCSF Chimera 1.15 and docking was analysed by using Biovia Discovery Studio 2021. The reults shows that phytochemicals qurercetin, ferulic acid, salicylic acid, and eugenol can act as potential inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2.
