Chaturvedi Sonam*, Upadhayay Neha and Kushwah Namrata
Dimocarpus longan lour fruit is a species belonging to the family Sapindaceae. It is a significant source of many phytochemicals with varying biological activities. The present investigation includes preparation of different solvent extracts of seeds using different method like Soxhlet apparatus, warm extraction & cold extraction. The present work focus to evaluate the physicochemical and preliminary phytochemical studies on seeds. This study of drug had been done on ethanolic, methanolic and distilled water extracts by three different procedure. It is a valuable method for the quantitative determination of phytochemicals present in plant extract. These studies aim to investigating the various phytochemical screening of dimocarpus longan lour seeds to showed the presence of Tannins, Proteins and amino acids, Glycosides, Phenolic compounds by using different extraction method for better yield. The result reveals that flavonoid, tannin, steroids, amino acid, glycosides and alkaloid. Hence the plant is recommended for therapeutical purpose.
Keywords: Phytochemical screening, Dimocarpus longan lour seeds, Flavonoid, Alkaloids, Soxhlet apparatus.
