Aim: The current study was designed to investigate total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC), radical scavenging activity and antimicrobial profile of the aqueous, methanolic, ethanolic, and acetone leaf extract of Pittosporum eriocarpum. Materials and Methods: TPC was performed by the Folin–Ciocalteu method and TFC was measured by aluminum chloride assay. The free radical scavenging activity of leaf extracts of P. eriocarpum was ascertained by 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl…
