The Phytochemistry Profile of Raru (Vatica pauciflora and Cotylelobium melanoxylon) and Its Potential as Diabetes Mellitus Drug
Abstract: Vatica pauciflora Blume and Cotylelobium melanoxylon Pierre have been used by Batak ethnic to cure of diabetes mellitus. Research was conducted to know the phytochemistry of Vatica pauciflora and Cotylelobium melanoxylon as initial step to bioprospection of diabetes mellitus drugs. The bark of Vatica pauciflora and obtained from Central Tapanuli (North Sumatra) and Cotylelobium melanoxylon obtained from Riau. The extraction done through maseration with ratio 1: 10 w/v (raru: methanol). The phytochemistry of Vatica pauciflora and Cotylelobium melanoxylon are analysed by Thin Liquid Chromatography (TLC). The bark of the Cotylelobium melanoxylon contains triterpenoids, flavonoids, tannins, and - sitosterol, while the bark of Vatica pauciflora have triterpenoids, flavonoids, and -sitosterol but do not tannin.
