Emodin has been used as a traditional Chinese medicine for over 2000 years and is still present in various herbal preparations. Emerging evidence indicates that emodin possesses a wide spectrum of pharmacological properties, including anticancer, hepatoprotective, antiinflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.

Cassia mimosoides leaves and pods as a potential agent in vector control of malaria and to evaluate repellent effect against Anopheles gambiae mosquito. Phyochemical screening using Borntranger's test showed the presence of anthraquinone. Physical and chemical tests of isolated compound was conducted. Preparative TLC of the ethyl acetate extract using Benzene-Ethyl Acetate -Acetic Acid (75:24:1), at Rf value 0.97, Emodin was isolated. By using IR, spectra of the isolated compound were confirmed.
