Phytochemical Analysis and Free Radical Scavenging Potential of Herbal and Medicinal Plant Extracts

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the phytochemical constitution and antioxidant activity of methanolic extract of dried leaves of four medicinally important herbs Ocimum sanctum,

Phytochemical screening and antioxidant activity determination of some medicinally important plants of Balochistan

The results indicated that the crude methanolic extracts of the selected plants contained medicinally bioactive constituents which could be used for the treatment of different diseases and could also be used to reduce the oxidative stress.

The biochemical significances of the proximate, mineral and phytochemical composition of selected vegetables from Pakistan

The results of this study suggests that all the selected green materials have very good medicinal potentials, meet the standard requirements for drug formulation and serve as good sources of energy and nutrients.

Qualitative and quantitative determination of phytochemicals in Convolvulus leiocalycinus and Haloxylon griffithii

The presence of high amount of phytochemical compounds suggest that both plants i.e., C. leiocalycinus and H. griffithii are not only useful to human beings but can also be commercialized for higher production of natural drugs rather than using synthetic drugs with side effects.

Comparative Study Of Phytochemical Constituents And Total Phenolic Content In The Extracts Of Three Different Species Of Genus Hedychium

Hedychium is a rhizomatous perennial plant which belongs to family Zingiberaceae with various ethnomedicinal and ornamental significance. In this study, three different species of genus Hedychium

Phytochemical screening, physico-chemical analysis and antioxidant activity of some ethnomedicinal plants from Sikkim Himalaya

The present study was carried out to determine the phytochemical constituents, physicochemical values and antioxidant activity of six traditionally used medicinal plants from Sikkim Himalaya

Phytochemical Analysis, Antioxidant Activity, Fatty Acids Composition, and Functional Group Analysis of Heliotropium bacciferum

The antioxidant (free radical scavenging) activity of various extracts of the Heliotropium bacciferum was resolute against 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical with the avail of UV spectrophotometer at 517 nm.

Antioxidant activity and phytochemical screening of two Cucurbitaceae: Citrullus colocynthis fruits and Bryonia dioica Asian

Objective: To evaluate antioxidant activity and quantify total content of polyphenols and flavonoids in two Cucurbitaceae plant extracts, Citrullus colocynthis ( C. colocynthis ) fruits and Bryonia

Phytochemical and Toxicity Analysis of Ricinus communis

Variations in the phytochemical content of the unfermented and fermented methanol extracts respectively showed variations in the alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, soluble carbohydrates, hydrogen cyanides, steroids and phenols.



Phytochemical constituents of some Nigerian medicinal plants

The significance of the plants in traditional medicine and the importance of the distribution of these chemical constituents were discussed with respect to the role of these plants in ethnomedicine in Nigeria.

Phytochemical and Nutrient Evaluation of Spondias Mombin Leaves

Sample of Spondias Mombin leaves was analyzed for the phytochemical composition, vitamins and minerals constituents. Phytochemical screening and subsequent quantification revealed the presence of

Antibacterial Activity of Some Selected Indian Medicinal Flora

Nine plants were screened for potential antibacterial activity and Sapindus emarginatus showed strong activity against the tested bacterial strains, which can be selected for further investigation to determine its therapeutic potential.

Phenolic content and antioxidant properties of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) seeds.

The results suggested that besides protein and oil contents, the phenolic contents should be also considered as an important characteristic feature of soybean seeds, and as a potential selection criterion for antioxidant activity in soybean.

Phytochemical Screening of Some Species of Iranian Plants

A phytochemical screening of fifty five Iranian plants belonging to 21 families was carried out for the presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins and flavonoids.

Flavonoid content in leaf extracts of the fig (Ficus carica L.), carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.) and pistachio (Pistacia lentiscus L.).

The present study is the first to report the presence of the isoflavonegenistein in the Pistacia leaf, which was discovered to consist of about a third of the genistein level detected in soybean.
