Abstract:
In the present study, an attempt has been made for the estimation of chlorophyll, total phenol content and radical scavenging properties of Piper betle (L.) leaves. In that, chlorophyll was ranged from 3.80 to 4.00 (mg/l).The total phenolic content was ranged from 94.98 to 95.18 mg/100g equivalent to gallic acid and antioxidant activity was estimated using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), free radical scavenging activity, The study revealed that the leaves of Piper betle (L.) has higher amount of antioxidant activity. The presence of phenol and phenolic (Chavicol, Chavibetol, Chavibetol acetate and eugenol) in the Piper betel leaves may be credulous to be responsible for its antioxidant activity.
