The aim of this research was to isolate and characterize the novel biopolymer from Fragaria ananassa fruits. The biopolymer was isolated by simplified and economical process and analysed for different physico-chemical and spectral properties. The isolated biopolymer appears as free flowing powder. The isolation procedures were optimized by repeating it for six times and thus were found to be economical and reproducible in nature with the yield of 13 ± 2%.The different functional groups like presence of hydroxyl, alkanes and alkenes, carboxylic acid which confirms its polymeric nature. The other groups like aromatic ring at, ketone were found to be present in the FTIR spectra, NMR and mass spectra. shows the mean % cell viability ranging from 101.62 ± 0.928 to 81.9 ± 6.265 % with IC50 values (µg/ml) of >500. Thus the cell viability assay data demonstrate that there is no cell death observed in assay. The study finds that the isolated biopolymer from Fragaria ananassa fruits contains unusual inherent stabilizer and cum retardant capabilities that can be exploited to develop a drug loaded delivery systems for long-term administration of drug candidate.

The results of the cell viability assay thus show that no cell death was noticed during the assay. According to the study, the biopolymer that was extracted from Fragaria ananassa fruits has exceptional built-in stabilizer and combustible properties that can be used to create drug-loaded delivery systems for long-term drug candidate administration.
