  Despite the outstanding ongoing research on anticancer activity the limited availability from the natural resources has barred drug discovery in researchers. The present work has been carried in achieving 99 percent pure synthesized chalcone derivative (2E)-1-(4-aminophenyl)-3-(4-benzyloxyphenyl)-prop-2-en-1-one (APBPP) with simple, cost effective method under room temperature conditions. As per the unique results obtained APBPP significantly augment anticancer effects theoretically.
