Acacia Senegal Willd (Leguminosae), known as Arabic gum tree. Its mature pods with seeds were extracted using solvents of different polarities and explored for in-vitro free radical scavenging activity. Preliminary assays of both extracts of Acacia Senegal pod scavenges 1,1diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl stable free radicals in concentration dependent manner. All studied extracts possess electron donating ability and reduce ferric ion to ferrous in a cell free system at pH-7.4. It has also been found… Expand
