ABSTRACT:
Abutilon indicum (Linn) sweet (Malvaceae) is a weed found on way side and at west place throughout the India, commonly known as Atibala. Phytochemical study of the plant revealed that the plant contains various phytoconstituent like flavonoids, tannins and phenolic compounds. Plant may give antioxidant activity as these phytoconstituents are reported to have antioxidant potential. Antioxidant activity of the various extracts of the aerial parts of A. indicum viz. petroleum ether extract, chloroform extract, methanol extract and aqueous extract was evaluated by using DPPH assay method, ABTS assay method and FRAP assay method. Total phenolic content of all the extracts was also determined. Results showed that methanol extract shows potent antioxidant activity and highest phenolic content.
