The plant poly phenols are present adequately which has high impact on human drugs. Flavan- 3- ol consist in the stem of Manilkara hexandra and it has rich medicinal value like anti-oxidant. The physical and chemical properties were investigated from the stem of Manilkara hexandra. Proximate, histochemical, fluorescence, mineral analysis were examined by using standard procedures. The flavan-3-ol was isolated using chromatographics method such as coloumn chromatography and thin layer chromatography. Then it was characterized by UV, FT-IR, LC-Ms, NMR (1H & 13 C) and it is further extended to in-vitro anti-oxidant (DPPH method) potential. The flavanoid was identified by preliminary investigation after then flavan-3-ol was isolated and it gives good response for anti-oxidant activity. The isolated catechin has a unique biological behaviours, and act as a metal chelating agent. So it can be used for further research from this plant.
