A method of extracting Karanjin in good yield from Pongamia oil is described. Karanjin is only faintly bitter and is found to be useful for the treatment of leucoderma. A method of hydrolysis of Karanjin giving rise to a good yield of Karanjic acid has been found. It has been shown that Pongamia oil contains potassium in some form of chemical combination. By the action of mercuric acetate, Karanjin yields a di-acetoxy-mercuri compound.
