Abstract

Hydromethanol extracts of 15 Bangladeshi medicinal plants, traditionally used in different ailments, were evaluated for antioxidant potential using DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl) radical scavenging assay. Among the extracts Cocos nucifera, Caesalpinia pulcherrima, Punica granatum and Syzygium cumini were found displaying strong (90% or more) DPPH radical scavenging action. Syzygium cumini exhibited the highest radical scavenging, with an IC 50 value of 4.25 μg/ml compared to the IC 50 value of 5.15 μg/ml as shown by the reference antioxidant ascorbic acid, in a dose dependent fashion.
