ABSTRACT:
Antioxidant research is very much essential in industries like food and pharmacy. Plants such as Tectona grandis, Azadirachta indica, Tamarindus indica, Ficus religiosa, Millettia pinnatta, Syzygium cumini, Terminaliia catappa, Melia composita, Artocarpus heterophyllus, Ciccia acida, Santalum album, Mangifera indica, Annona squamosa, Morinda pubescens, Wrightia tinctoria were selected for the assessment of secondary metabolites and antioxidant activities. Among the secondary metabolites studied, the phenolic content was found to be higher. Among the antioxidant activities studied, metal chelating activity was found to be high followed by hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity. While, total antioxidant activity, reducing power activity, nitric oxide scavenging activity was found to be moderate for the plants studied. Hence, these plants might be serving as a good antioxidants.
