Sapindus emarginatus Vahl belongs to the family Sapindaceae. The aquous extract of the pericarps of Sapindus emarginatus Vahl was screened for its phytochemical content and evaluated for anti inflammatory activity in-vitro. The results of the phytochemical screening revealed the presence of saponins, terpenoids, tannins, flavonoids, cardiac glycosides and sugars. The aqueous extract showed marked inhibition of protease activity and protein denaturation.
