Exact bound state solutions and the corresponding wave functions of the Schrodinger equation for some non-central potentials including Makarov potential, modified-Kratzer plus a ring-shaped potential, double ring-shaped Kratzer potential, modified non-central potential and ring-shaped non-spherical oscillator potential are obtained by using the Laplace transform approach. The energy spectrums of the Hartmann potential, modified-Kratzer potential and ring-shaped oscillator potential are also briefly studied as special cases. It is seen that our analytical results for all these potentials are consistent with those obtained by other works. We also give some numerical results obtained for the modified non-central potential for different values of the related quantum numbers.
