Syzygium cumini Linn (S. cumini L.) is a medicinal plant of wide range of pharmacological activities. Aim of the present study is to examine effect of extraction solvents on UV absorbing property of the plant. Leaves of S. cumini L. were collected and identified by the taxonomist. Solvent extractions of the leaves were made separately by using methanol, ethanol, chloroform, acetone, benzene and ethyl acetate. The extractions were separately exposed for absorption of UV ray in a spectrophotometer using UV region. Result showed that all extracts ofS. cumini L. leaves had UV absorption property but acetone extract had maximum activity. Acetone extract of S. cumini L. leaves may, therefore, be further studied for isolation of the active compound responsible for UV absorbing property.
Keywords: Syzygium cumini L. Leaves; Solvent Extractions; UV Absorbing Property
