ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF CRATEVA MAGNA (Lour.) DC
In the present study, Crateva magna bark was extracted with various solvents in order to their standing in the polarity chart and the extracts were then subjected to preliminary phytochemical investigation. After that we have subjected the extracts to antioxidant assay using FTC, TBA, DPPH and Reducing Power assay as models and Antimicrobial assay. The Chloroform extract has shown potential antioxidant and antimicrobial activity among all the extracts under evaluation. The findings here justify the ethnomedicinal claim against the plant under consideration.
Keywords: Crateva magna, Antioxidant, Antimicrobial, Ethnomedicine.
