Bivalve molluscs in Malaysia consist of a great variety of species. One bivalve species of commercial importance is razor clam (Solen sp). Solen sp are locally known as ‘ambal ‘in Sarawak. This species has been traditionally collected for human consumption over the past decades and is often served in popular seafood restaurants. Razor clams can be found in the intertidal sandy beaches in Kuching and Samarahan Division of Sarawak. Nowadays, razor clams are inadequate to meet the growing demand. In Sarawak, razor clams number has been reduced significantly and this is especially true in Peninsular Malaysia. In addition, there is a limited study on razor clams reported in scientific journal. In the present, research on the potential chemical compounds present in that species is studied. The extraction was carried out with methanol while fractionation and isolation was carried out using column chromatography. The isolated component was analyzed using chromatographic and spectroscopic method. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analysis of the component indicates the presence of carbonyl group, saturated and unsaturated carbon.
