Antioxidant activity and phytochemical screening of hydromethanolic extracts of Aegle marmelos fruit, leaves and bark were investigated in this work. Phytochemical screening of the crude extracts revealed the presence of Alkaloids, glycosides, Terpenoids, Saponins, Tannis, Flavonoids, and Steroids. Antioxidant activity of the extracts was evaluated using Fenton reaction: an in vitro assay and the extracts showed high hydroxyl radical scavenging property when compared with Ascorbic acid, which was used as reference standard. These findings demonstrated that Aegle marmelos extracts possess free radical and hydroxyl radical scavenging activity as well as antioxidant activity in vitro.
