Then the solvent for extraction (water, drug solvent ratio taken = 1:8) wasfilled. After completion of the extraction procedure the extract was taken out and evaporated up to semisolid consistency and then amount in percentages was determined in % w/w. Result: The plant Butea monosperma is very popular among the peoples of Northern Ghana, where the leaves are used in soups; and calyces for soft drinks and also used medicinally.
