Abstract
Aim: The present study was to determine the in vitro antioxidant activity of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of Psydrax dicoccos (Wall. & Arn.) Swingle.
Methods: The different extracts of P. dicoccos leaves were antioxidant potential by using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH), 2, 2-Azino-bis-3-ethyl benzthiazoline-6-sulphonic acid (ABTS•+), Hydrogen peroxide scavenging, Superoxide anions scavenging, Hydroxyl radical scavenging, Ferric reducing antioxidant power, Total antioxidant activity (Phosphomolybdic acid) IC50 values were calculated compare to standard antioxidant for L- ascorbic acid, (BHT) butylated hydroxytoluene and gallic acid.
Results: The methanol extract showed the highest phenol and flavonoid contents were also investigated. Among the different extracts methanol extract of Psydrax dicoccos had significantly higher. The total phenol (5.05 ± 0.76) mg/ml gallic acid equivalent (GAE/g) and flavonoids (6.72 ± 0.13) mg/ml quercetin equivalent (QE/g) were found to be higher in methanol extract of Psydrax dicoccos.
Conclusion: The results of the study revealed that the methanol extract of P. dicoccos can be an interesting source of natural antioxidants with their potential use in novel bioactive compounds.
