Abstract

Objective: To determine the antioxidant activity of Nyctanthes arbortristis (Family-Oleaceae).

Methods: The hydroalcoholic extract of the root of plant Nyctanthes arbortristis was taken into considerations to determine the phytochemicals present in it. The extracts of the roots were evaluated for antioxidant activity by using different in vitro model like Reducing Power Method and DPPH method.

Results: In the current investigation it has been found that the Pet. Ether and Hydroalcoholic extracts showed potent antioxidant activity by reducing power, as the concentration of the extracts increased, the absorbance was also increased correspondingly.

Conclusion: The hydroalcoholic extracts of this plant showed potent antioxidant activity against the standard drug (Kaempferol).
Keywords: Nyctanthes arbortristis, Phytochemistry, Antioxidant Activity
