ABSTRACT
Recently, natural plants have received much attention as sources of biological active substances including antioxidants. In this present study we investigated Quantification of total phenolic, alkaloid content and In-vitro antioxidant activity of ethanol (70%), methanol, ethyl acetate and hexane extracts of Ficus semicordata. The quantification of the total phenolic and alkaloid contents were estimated by taking Gallic acid and atropine are as a standard, In-vitro antioxidant activity was evaluated for extracts by using different free radicals (Superoxide, Hydroxyl and DPPH). Ficus semicordata leaves ethanol extract have more phenolic and methanol extract have more alkaloid content than other extracts. The selected plant extracts were produced concentration dependent percentage inhibition of different free radicals and produced maximum activity at a concentration of 1280μg and there after the percentage inhibition were raised gradually to its maximum level with higher concentrations. In the present study we found that the extracts of Ficus semicordata leaves showed good Antioxidant activity. Among the four extracts, the ethanol (70%) extract showed better activity than other extracts.
