Author(s):

Abstract:
The antioxidant activity of methanolic extract Clerodendrum infortunatum Linn. (MECI), which is widely utilized in Indian traditional medicine for a variety of ailments, was investigated. Many antioxidant components found in plants have been recognized as active oxygen scavengers or free radical scavengers. The reagent DPPH is commonly used to assess antioxidants' ability to scavenge free radicals. MECI was found to contain a high level of polyphenolics and to have strong free radical scavenging activity. The presence of the highest amount of polyphenolics and flavonoids in it could explain the increased activity. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of extract indicated presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, glycosides, proteins and amino acids, phytosterols, phenols, tannins, flavonoids and resins and GC-MS analysis investigated presence of total 20 active phytoconstituents.
