PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF DIOSPYROS EBENUM J. KOENIG EX RETZ., LEAVES EXTRACTAbstract
Phytochemical screening and antioxidant activities with different solvents extracts of Diospyros ebenum were investigated. The phytochemical screening of this study indicated the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, coumarins, flavonoids, glycosides, phenols, proteins, saponins, steroids, tannins, and terpenoids. The methanolic extract of D. ebenum was significantly higher phenolic content when compared to hexane and diethyl ether extracts. In order to effectiveness (IC50) of the plant extracts the potent inhibitors of methanolic extract followed the methods (H2O2, RPA and TBA). This showed that Diospyros ebenum with different solvents extracts especially the methanolic extract may be a potent source of extraction of natural antioxidant and its use in the management of disease associated with oxidative stress was justified.
