Abstract: Phyllanthus emblica contains rich vitamin C and polyphenol. In the present work, the potential anti oxidant polyphenols is produced from Phyllanthus emblica using soxhlet extraction process. For this purpose, 150 millimeter size of the phyllanthus emblica bark was collected and solvents such as ethanol, acetone and methanol is used for extracting polyphenols from the Phyllanthus emblica. The obtained extract is separated and total phenolic content is determined from the product. From the study it was observed that maximum yield of polyphenol obtained from 80 volume % of ethanol at a temperature of 70°C. The results will be useful in understanding this amla fruit, hence large scale production can be improved industrially.
Keywords: Polyphenol, soxhlet, extraction.
