Antioxidant Activity and Phytochemical Screening of Michelia Champaca L. Flowers

Abstract: Michelia champaca L. is an evergreen, small to medium sized tree. It is commonly known as Swarna champa or Kanak champa. Present study was conducted to test the antioxidant potential and phytochemical analysis of its flowers. Antioxidant activity was evaluated in-vitro by DPPH radical scavenging assay and reducing power assay. Highest activity was shown by methanol extract of flowers at 150µg/ml concentration in both DPPH assay and reducing power assay. Inhibition concentration 50% value of methanol was found … Show more

“…champaca commonly known as champak/chembakam is an evergreen tropical tree known for their scented flowers. Traditionally the plant parts were used for their beneficial activity against nausea, haemolysis, leprosy, ulcers, gout, cough, bronchitis, malaria and dysmenorrhea (Sinha and Varma, 2017).The plant possessed diverse pharmacological activities like antioxidant (Hasan et al, 2020), antimicrobial (Daphedar et al, 2020), schizonticidal (Mehrotra et al, 2017), spasmolytic, air-way relaxing and vasodilating potential (Saqib et al, 2018). Yesmin et al (2021) established the antineoplastic potential of M. champaca bark methanolic extract against Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) in Swiss albino mice.…”
