Evaluation of Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Pandanus odoratissimus

R. Londonkar and A. Kamble    

Abstract: Pandanus odoratissimus is used in traditional medicinal and it is also famous for its fragency. The present study was performed to evaluate the methanolic effect of Pandanus odoratissimus (MEPO) against free radical damage. The antioxidant activity of has MEPO been studied using its ability to scavenging DPPH, Nitric acid, superoxide radicals and hydroxyl radicals. The MEPO shows antioxidant activity by 87.52% reducing the DPPH and 73.55% inhibition of nitric acid. The result also indicates maximum inhibition of superoxide radical’s inhibition 74.12 and 78.14% inhibition of hydroxyl radicals. The BHT was used as standard.
