ABSTRACT:
The contemporary appraisal expanses an illumination on the extraction, screening, chemical synthesis, purity assessment, quantification, molecular and biological aspects, and pharmacokinetic studies of Scopoletin isolated from the fruit of Mengkudu (Morinda citrifolia-Rubiaceae), an edible and medicinal tropic plant. A comprehensive assortment of phytoconstituents principally alkaloids, coumarin, flavonoids, terpenoids, phenolics, vitamins, minerals, and many supplementary compounds whose activities have been proved are in existence in the Mengkudu fruit extract. This fruit has been used in traditional medicines to preclude, treat, and alleviate both communicable and non-communicable ailments.
