Abstract

Aegle marmelos (Linn) Correa, commonly known as bael or (bel), belonging to the family Rutaceae, is a moderate sized, slender and aromatic tree. A number of chemical constituents and various therapeutic effects of leaves of Aegle marmelos have been reported by different workers. The leaves of Aegle marmelos contain alkaloids, phenylpropanoids, terpenoids and other miscellaneous compounds whereas the potential pharmacological activity of the leaves are hypoglycemic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anticancer, radioprotective, chemopreventive and anti-oxidative activity. The continuous two year investigation showed that leaves generally accumulated highest amount of chlorophyll a (2.60 mg/g fresh wt.), chlorophyll b (1.73 mg/g fresh wt.) and carotenoid (1.51 mg/g fresh wt. ) in summer season compare to monsoon and winter.

Keywords: Chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, carotenoid and Aegle marmelos
