  • Abstract

    In the present study, the mangroves, Avicennia and Excoecaria agallocha (Euphorbiaceae), were selected for this study. The crude extracts from dried leaf of the mangroves were extracted using soxhlet extraction method and obtained extracts were concentrated by using rotary evaporator. Two solvents Methanol and Ethyl acetate were used to extract the leaf material. Extracts from mangroves and mangrove-dependent species have proven effective against human, animal and plant pathogens, but only limited investigations have been carried out to identify the metabolites responsible for their bioactivities. Hence it is of interest to investigate the phytochemical analysis of mangrove plants such as Avicennia and Excoecaria Agallocha.
