This paper deals with the comparative experimental study through extraction and physicochemical characteristics of both crude and refined Jamun seed oil. The extraction was done using normal hexane. Degumming, neutralization and bleaching process were used for refining of oil, by activated clay. The specific gravity, refractive index, acid value, saponification value and iodine value were determined for both crude and refined samples, within the ASTM standard specifications. The high iodine value (94.5) for the refined oil indicates that the oil is quite unsaturated and of non-drying nature, so can be used in medicated soaps. The physicochemical properties can be improved by above refining for better applications.
