Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy is an analytical technique used for the qualitative and quantitative determination of the elements present in the plant extracts. Syzygiumsamarangense(Blume) Merr. & L.M. Perry is a famous deciduous tree belongs to Myrtaceae family, which is being cultivated in India mainly for their edible fruits. It is also well known as java apple and water apple. Multi-metal analysis was carried out on the stem bark of Syzygiumsamarangense, 11 elements were found i.e. B, Ca, Mg, Na, K, Mn, Zn, As, Pb, Cd, Hg were screened and found by using AAS technique (digestion method). Stem bark was also found to contain Magnesium (Mg), Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) at greater concentrations, when compared with the other elements. The present paper deals with the presence of multi metallic constituents and their pharmacological properties by using AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrometer) and it is a first time report on this plant species.
