Abstract:
Present study deals with antioxidant capacity of different ethanolic extracts obtained from various parts of Fumaria parviflora Lam. The antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract of root, stem, leaf and fruit was determined by 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method from concentration 125µg/mL to 1000 µg/mL. In this method, the ethanolic extract of leaf of Fumaria parviflora Lam. was found to be the most active and reference was used as quercetin. Total phenols and flavonoids substance of the ethanolic extracts were determined by UV- visible spectrophotometer using Folin-Ciocalteau’s and AlCl3 reagents, respectively. The data revealed that antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract of leaf was found to be more effective followed by stem, fruit, and root. From study it can be concluded that the ethanolic extract of leaf of Fumaria parviflora Lam. have more polyphenols and flavonoids compounds and these are responsible for the antioxidant activity.
