In this present study we aim to evaluate in vitro antioxidant and free radical scavenging potential of different extract of Butea Frondosa Roxb. Flowers in different system viz. Radical scavenging activity by DPPH reduction and lipid peroxidation assay (TBARS). All extracts have different level of antioxidant activity. The activity was expressed as the inhibitory concentration (IC50). In conclusion the present study indicates that alcoholic extract and n-butanol fraction of alcoholic extract which is obtained by solvent partition of alcoholic extract of Butea Frondosa Roxb. flower showed significant activity by both methods and can be a potential source of natural antioxidants.
