Though numerous researches have been done on the marine kingdom, algae have sprouted as the diadem by providing many potent drugs as alternatives for the synthetic drugs which are expensive and have adverse effects. Turbinaria conoides has been reported for Cytotoxicity and traditionally claimed as an effective remedy for children’s fever and antibacterial, thereby demanding a scientific backing. Turbinaria conoides gifted 2 new steroids along with Fucosterol from the cyclohexane extract for the investigation. Among the four extracts of Turbinaria conoides, cyclohexane extract exposed itself as the highest active antimicrobial and antipyretic thereby supporting traditional claims. Isolated steroids showed significant cholinergic, anticholinergic properties and proved to be new antifungal compounds, potent antihistaminic as well. This research on Turbinaria conoides has thrown light upon the path that may lead to the discovery of many new drugs and will open up much more windows for the futuristic algal research.
