Abstract:
Nephelium lappaceum L. (Sapindaceae) also known as Rambutan is a tropical fruit tree common to Southeast Asia. The Rambutan fruit possesses various medicinal properties such as astringent, stomachic and febrifuge. Traditionally, it was used for the treatment of diarrhoea, dysentery and fever. The antibacterial, antiproliferative as well as the antihyperglycemic effect of the fruits were reported. The objective of the present study was to carry out Successive solvent extraction by Maceration, Soxhlation, and Ultra Sound assisted extraction using different solvents like Petroleum ether, Chloroform, Ethyl Acetate, Methanol and Distilled water as well as the preliminary phytochemical screening and to compare the results.
