Phytochemicals and Antioxidant Activity Investigation of Butea monosperma Lam. Leaves Ethanol Extract
Keywords:antioxidant, pharmacological, phytochemical
The aim of this study was to investigate phytochemicals and antioxidant activity of plant Butea monosperma Lam. leaves ethanol extract. The different extracts of this plant were reported the rich source contents of bioactive phytochemicals in the leaves and afford for various pharmacological activities. The ethanol extract of leaves was subjected to investigate phytochemicals and antioxidant activity by using DPPH in vitro system. The provided evidence of results concluded that the ethanol extract of Butea monosperma Lam. leaves are potential sources of natural bioactive phytochemicals and showed potent in vitro antioxidant activity with their IC50 value of 44.16 μg/ml. Therefore phytochemical investigation of plant leaves ethanol extract was noted various bioactive phytochemicals, which may serve as a potent source of natural antioxidants.
