Abstract

Total phenolics and flavonoids contents among the selected species of Syzygium, Gaertn. of family Myrtaceae such as Syzygium aqueum Alston, Syzygium cumini (L.) Skeels, Syzygium jambos L.(Alston), Syzygium malaccense (L.) Merr. and L. M. Perry and Syzygium samarangense (Blume) Merrill and Perry were evaluated in the present investigation. The total phenolic content and flavonoid content was analyzed using spectrophotometer. The results revealed that Syzygium leaves were rich source of phenolic compounds and flavonoids than the Syzygium barks. Among the species, more phenolic content were found in Syzygium cumini leaves which is well known for diabetes treatment whereas the total flavonoid content was found to be prominent in Syzygium samarangense leaf, which possess antipyretic and diuretic property.
