  • Abstract

    The fruit pulp of Feronia elephantum corr. was collected and powdered. Methanolic extract was prepared by using soxhlet apparatus and subsequently fractioned with different solvents for detailed chemical analysis. Fluorescence characters of different successive extract and powder were noted under ultra violet light and under normal ordinary light, which signifies their characteristics. The total ash value, acid insoluble ash value and water soluble ash value were 8.56, 0.90 and 4.8 % respectively. The percentage yield for pet. ether, solvent ether, ethyl acetate, n-butanol, chloroform and ethanol were 0.24, 0.52, 1.45, 5.22, 0.89 and 15.7 % respectively. Reaction behaviors of fruit pulp with seven different reagents were also noted, which revealed characteristic development of particular color. Preliminary qualitative chemical tests of extracts were found positive for Phytosterol, flavonoids and triterpenoids in Pet. ether and solvent ether. Ethyl acetate fraction showed positive results for flavanoids and tannin only. n-butanol fraction showed positive reaction to carbohydrate, tannin and amino acid, whereas, Ethanol fraction was positive to carbohydrate, tannin and amino acid and vitamin C. Chloroform fraction did not showed any reaction. Flavonoids and triterpenoids are the active constituents in fruit pulp of Feronia elephantum corr. and may be responsible for its pharmacological activities.
