Abstract:

This report describes the phytochemical relation of the antibacterial, antioxidant activity of different explants extract of Saraca asoca (Roxb.) De Wilde. In the present study preliminary phytochemical analysis of different extracts (bark, flower and leaves) was conducted, which revealed the presence of Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Saponins, Phenols, Steroids, Tannins and Triterpenoids. Quatitative estimation of Flavanoids and Phenols was conducted using methanolic, ethanolic and aqueous extracts. Screening for antibacterial activity of extracts of different S. asoca explants were performed against gram positive and gram negative bacteria by the disk diffusion method. The activities of the compounds were compared with standard strain for antibacterial properties of the imine base and its solvent extract evaluated and presenting in indicate that the compounds are active in exhibiting antibacterial role. Methanol bark extract showed maximum DPPH, radical scavenging activity which is the measure of antioxidant property at the concentration of above compounds at 200 g/L-1 follows the order Ascorbic acid > Bark extract of S. asoca while at higher concentration the same order is followed by bark extraction exchanged their position. There present study confirms of photochemical, antibacterial and antioxidant activity of all plant extract of S. asoca.


Keywords: Saraca asoca, Phytochemical screening, Antibacterial activity, Antioxidant activity, DPPH.
