Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Terminalia chebula belongs to the family of Combretaceae. This is used in traditional medicine due to the wide spectrum of pharmacological activities associated with the biologically active chemicals present in this plant. It contains various bio chemical components such as tannins, chebulinic acid, ellagic acid, gallic acid, punicalagin, flavonoids etc. The dried fruits of Terminalia chebula is used to produced the dye. The appearance of dye powder is brown and the main colouring component is chebulinic acid. The objectives of this work were extraction of chebulinic acid from Terminalia chebula by Soxhlet extraction and purify the chebulinic acid by using Column chromatography. From the Soxhlet extraction the chebulinic acid concentration was 6.6 mg/ml and it was increased to 9.4 mg/ml from the Column chromatography. The purity of chebulinic acid was improved by Column chromatography.
