This project deals with the phenomenology of beyond Standard Model scalar particles which can couple to two Standard Model fermions. We use Monte-Carlo event generators to simulate processes involving such scalars and comment about feasibility of their detection in a pp collider like LHC. Although a majority of the scalars are seen to give very weak signal, we �nd one color sextet scalar which can give us detectable values of cross-section. On further analysis we see the scalar to give rise to unique signals which can open up windows of searching for this scalar e�ectively in LHC. Both theoretical and computational studies of those signals have been done.
