PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND IN VITRO ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF THE METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF LINDERNIA RUELLIOIDES (COLSM.) PENNELL
Objective: The objective of the study was collection of plant materials, Extraction of phytoconstituents using a different solvent, to carry out preliminary phytochemical screening of different extracted solvent, to perform fluorescence analysis, to estimate the proximate composition of the leaves Lindernia ruellioides (Colsm.) Pennell, and to determine the presence of in vitro anti-oxidant of the methanolic extract of the plant.
Method: Preliminary phytochemical screening of the methanolic extract of Lindernia ruellioides (Colsm.) Pennell, estimation of proximate composition of the leaves, fluorescence analysis, total phenolic content, total flavonoids content, and in vitro antioxidant activity of the methanol extract (DPPH scavenging activity, reducing power assay, and nitric oxide scavenging activity).
Results: The result of phytochemical screening of methanolic extract of Lindernia ruellioides (Colsm.) Pennell contents the presence of amino acid, flavonoids, tannins, steroids, and triterpenoids. The moisture content and Ash value were found to be appropriate and the in vitro antioxidant activity of the methanolic extract showed potential antioxidant activity in terms of DPPH scavenging activity, reducing power assay, and nitric oxide scavenging activity.
Conclusion: The work presented here suggests that the methanolic extract of Lindernia ruellioides (Colsm.) Pennell possesses potential antioxidant activity.
