PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTY OF PREMNA LATIFOLIAAbstract
Plants have been used for centuries as a remedy for human diseases because they contain phytochemical components of therapeutic values. Hexane, ethyl acetate and ethanolic extract of Premna latifolia were investigated for phytochemical constituent and antioxidant activity. The phytochemical constituent was investigated using standard chemical methods. Further, the study was extended by analyzing the antioxidant potential using DPPH method. The results showed that ethanolic extract showed a significant number of phytoconstituents and better radical scavenging activity at the concentration of 75 µg/ml.
