The current research investigation was carried out with the main aim of extraction of photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll-a and chlorophyll-b) by using acetone solvent. The study is also concern on the extraction ratio of biomolecules with respect to different concentrations. Chlorophyll a, and Chlorophyll b were extracted from the test samples of mung beans plants treated with Amaranthus viridis (AV) extracts of different concentrations viz. AV 100%, AV 80%, AV 60%, AV 40%, AV 20%, and 0% as control using 100% acetone. Results delineated that different trend was observed in extraction rate for chlorophylls. Highest content of chlorophylls (Ch-a & Ch-b) was noted in test sample AV 80% (mung bean plants treated with 80% concentrated Amaranthus viridis extract). Whereas, lowest content of chlorophylls (Ch-a & Ch-b) was present in AV 60% (AV 60% = mung bean plants treated with 60% concentrated extract of Amaranthus viridis) & 0% (0% = untreated mung bean plants) respectively.
