Screening of antioxidant activity, total phenolics and gas chromatograph and mass spectrometer (GC-MS) study of delonix regia

The present study was carried out for identification of the phytochemicals present in the Delonix regia leaves and also evaluates the total phenols, total flavonoids and antioxidant activity of the leaf extract. Total phenols were carried out by Folin Ciocalteu method and the phenolic content was 16.00 mg/100 g of gallic acid equivalent (GE). Antioxidant activity was evaluated by 2,2-Diphenyl-1-Picrylhydrazyl...

Antioxidant activity of methanolic extract of Pongamia pinnata on lead acetate induced hepatic damage in rats

The antioxidant effect of methanolic extract of Pongamia pinnata was evaluated against lead acetate induced hepatic damage in male albino rats. Methanolic extract from the flowers of P. pinnata at a dose level of 150 mg/kg b.wt/day was administered orally daily once for 90 days. The substantially decreased enzymatic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione...
