The roots of syzygium cuminii (L) skeel was collected in Gulbarga district Karnataka. Dried and subjected for extraction with petroleum ether ,chloroform the residue obtained after the evaporation of chloroform was taken for further study to isolate six chemical constituent present in it (ScRex-3, ScRex-4, ScRex-5, ScRex-6a, ScRex-6b, ScRex-2,)this constituent were subjected for structural elucidation by physical measurement and phyto-chemical study. The pharmacological study describe is restricted only to the antidiabetic activity of chloroform extract the result obtained is compared with standard used for antidiabetic study for the measurement of glucose level in blood. The further study is in progress to isolate the above component in higher quantity and screen them for antidiabetic properties.
Syzygium cuminii, Myrtaceae, Chloroform extract, antidiabetic.
