Author(s): A Srivani and G Krishna Mohan
Abstract: The natural antioxidants present in the plants which are of great human interest that help to prevent or treat many diseases are phenols and flavonoids. This article is focused at estimation of total Phenolic, Flavonoid content and Antioxidant activity of Hexane, Ethyl acetate, Acetone, Methanol and Ethanol extracts of Givotia moluccana (L.) Sreem. Total phenol and flavonoid content for the various solvent extracts of leaves was carried out using Folin-Ciocalteau method and flavonoid content by Aluminium chloride colorimetric method. Antioxidant properties of leaf extracts were determined by DPPH, Hydrogen peroxide scavenging capacity and Ferrous reducing antioxidant capacity assay. The plant showed good phenolic content 181.34±2.24 mg GAE/gr. Ext. and flavonoid content 96.27±1.42 mg CE/gr. Ext. for methanol extract compared to other extracts. The Antioxidant activity of methanolic extract showed highest activity by various methods used.
