ABSTRACT:
Borassus flabellifer Linn. (Areaceae) is a tall tree (palm) growing in sandy soil and attaining a height of 20-30 meters with straight trunk. The extraction was carried out around 300 gm of powder was subjected to successive hot continuous extraction (Soxhelt) with petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, chloroform, methanol, chloroform-water. The Phytochemical analysis carried out revealed the presence of Saponins, tannins, flavonoids, carbohydrates, amino acids and phenolic compounds in the extracts. For assessing in-vitro antioxidant activity total antioxidant capacity and determination of total phenolic content methods were used. In total antioxidant capacity aqueous extract was found a significant antioxidant activity. In determination of total phenolic content alcoholic extract shown highly significant result.
