OBJECTIVE To investigate antioxidant activities of some selected plants used to treat diabetic patients by Thai folk doctors. MATERIAL AND METHOD Ten Thai plants were selected, macerated and extracted with 95% ethanol. DPPH scavenging and lipid peroxidation assays were used to test the antioxidant activities of the extracts. RESULTS Mammea siamensis (Saaraphee), Tacca chantrieri (Narapusri) and Albizia myriophylla (Cha Em Thai) showed the highest antioxidant activity on DPPH radical assay… 
The present investigation reviews Albizia species (Family- Mimosaceae) to tap out the shelf of bioactive constituents that possess pharmacological properties to fetch the optimistic utility of phytoconstituents for its therapeutic applications.
Chemical constituents and biological activities of Albizia myriophylla wood
This is the first report of compounds 1–4 from A. myriophylla, a medicinal plant widely used in Thailand and other Asian countries as a folk medicine remedy for many ailments, which showed potent antibacterial and cytotoxic activities compared with other isolates.
Albizia amara-A Potential Medicinal Plant: A Review
Phytochemical investigation revealed the presence of wide variety of bioactive compounds such as macrocyclic spermine alkaloids, triterpene saponins, phenols, flavonyl glycosides, tannins, sterols in the plant extract of Albizia amara.
Alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity of ethanol extract, fractions and purified compounds from the wood of Albizia myriophylla
The plant ethanol extract and its different fractions possessed α-glucosidase inhibitory activity in a concentration-dependent manner and it was proved that indenoic acid, 8-methoxy-7, 3′,4′-trihydroxyflavone and 3,4,7,3′-tetrahydroxyflavan were partially rational for antidiabetic effect of this plant species.
