Aegle marmelos (L.) is very important fruit plant in all over India which has great importance due to their economic value, nutritive value and major source of medicines. Aegle marmelos (L.) unripe fruit is considered as most natural medicinal fruit. In fruit plant the knowledge of elements are very important because it may influence the production of their bioactive constituents and their pharmacological action. Active constituents of plant are metabolic products of plant cells and a number of trace elements play an important role in metabolism. In present study characterization of Aegle marmelos (L.) unripe fruit powder was carried by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. The Aegle marmelos (L.) unripe fruit powder showed various elements like C, O, N, K, Ca, Mg, S, Se and Pt. FTIR spectra showed various functional groups to elucidate its structure and composition. The FESEM technique with EDAX helps to characterize the biomaterial in Aegle marmelos (L.) at its elemental and morphological level. The present study concluded that, determination of functional groups by FTIR and characterization of elemental and morphological properties by FESEM techniques helps to identify the potential bioactive constituents of Aegle marmelos (L.) unripe fruit.
