Abstract

Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate preliminary phytochemicals and in-vitro evaluation of antioxidant activity of Sesamum indicum leaves.
Methods: Antioxidant activity was evaluated by using in-vitro antioxidant assay models like hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity, reducing power assay and phosphomolybdenum method. All the antioxidant activities were compared with standard antioxidant such as ascorbic acid.
Results: The ethanolic extract of Sesamum indicum leaves was found to contain flavonoids. Additionally, the capacity to scavenge hydrogen peroxide, the reducing power (capacity to reduce Fe3+ to Fe2+) and formation of phosphomolybdenum complex were evaluated. From this study it was concluded that the extract exhibited a concentration dependent scavenging activity.

Keywords:
Sesamum indicum, Flavonoids, Hydrogen peroxide scavenging, Reducing power, Phosphomolybdenum complex
