The present study was to evaluate the phytochemical analysis, antimicrobial activity and radical scavenging and antioxidant properties of the Garcinia mangostana L. pericarp and Clitoria ternatea flower (blue) extract obtained by methanol solvent. The extracts were evaluated antioxidant activity by DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) and antimicrobial activity through well diffusion method. Antimicrobial activity of mangosteen pericarp extract was recorded highest zone of inhibition against Staphylococcus aureus (11mm) while butterfly pea flower extract was recorded highest inhibition against E. coli (12mm). Manosteen extract and butterfly pea extract were observed to have high-quality antioxidant activity. The IC50 values of mangosteen extract was 51.53 μg/ml and butterfly extract was 92.42μg/ml evaluated. Based from the results methanol was proper solvent to extract the antioxidant antimicrobial compounds form Clitoria ternatea and mangosteen.
