Chlorophyllin refers to any one of a group of closely related water-soluble salts that are semi-synthetic derivatives of chlorophyll. It is most common form is sodium copper derivative used as a food additive and in alternative medicine. In this study sodium copper chlorophyllin was extracted from Phyllanthus emblica, a medicinal plant and estimated by visible spectrophotometer and further characterized by TLC, IR, NMR and GC-Mass Chromatographic techniques and studied the anticancer activity against MCF-7 cell line and Vero cell line. Result shows that Chlorophyllin of Phyllanthus emblica has good anticancer activity for breast cancer cell line by using MTT assay.
