Abstract:
Acacia saligna Labill, also known as coojong, the blue-leafed wattle, golden wreath wattle, the orange wattle, the Western Australian golden wattle, and also known as Port Jackson willow in the place of Africa, is a little tree in the Fabaceae family. It is widely dispersed over Western Australia's south-west region, reaching the Murchison River in the north, and Israelite Bay in the east. It is indigenous to Australia. The most prevalent phenolic substances of this plant are benzoic acid, o-coumaric acid, caffeine, p-hydroxy benzoic acid and ellagic acid while the identified flavonoid compounds were naringenin, quercetin, and kaempferol. Due to its ability to develop into a woody shrub or tree in a variety of soil types, it is useful for many different things. In addition to being utilized as an ornamental plant, it has also been used for tanners, reforestation, animal feed, mine site rehabilitation, firewood, mulch, and agroforestry. The selected pharmacological activity of this plant includes antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-ulcerative colitis, anticancer, cytotoxic and anti-hyperglycaemic etc.
