Sudan has great divergence in natural resources; forests for example play a crucial role in providing wide range of products. Gumbail tree is of wide distribution in it. The aim of this work was to evaluate some phytochemical tests for Gumbail (Cordia africana) and its uses in termite management. The phytochemical evaluation involves the separation of the active ingredients from leaves-ethyl acetate extract to control termites. The analysis of chromatography showed ten bands. Dursban 48EC was also used as standard in the termite management and it's the average termite's damage was (13.22% weight loss) comparing to the above ten bands. The results showed that, the average termite's damage of band number (1) was (20.56% weight loss) and it's more efficient than the other bands. The active ingredients were detected in intact and seedling of plant samples from Zalingei and Diling, by thin layer chromatography. Finding novel termite-active compound in Gumbail was recommended to use as wood-paints or pesticide to management termite.
