Results: The total phenol, flavonoid and tannin content were estimated to be 1.03%, 5.33% and 1.83% respectively. HPTLC studies revealed the presence of β-sitosterol, lupeol, rutin, ellagic acid, ferulic acid and quercetin in 50% ethanolic extract. The extract showed significant free radical scavenging activity with an IC50 of 110.36μg/ml. Ascorbic acid was taken as the standard antioxidant and its IC50 value was 42 μg/ml. The extract showed significant antibacterial activity against E. coli… CONTINUE READING
