A simple and practical method for the isolation of mangiferin from Mangifera indica Linn. (Anacardiaceae) (Mango) bark has been developed. The method involves solvent extraction of the dried bark powder using a single solvent and further purification by recrystallization to yield pure mangiferin. Purity of the compound was ascertained using HPLC. The structure of the compound was elucidated by IR, MS and NMR spectral analysis.
