Abstract


This work evaluates the antioxidant activity of strychnobiflavone due to the increasing demand of the antioxidant agents day by day. Various in vitro antioxidants assays such as 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) were used to investigate the antioxidant activity of strychnobiflavone. The results of both DPPH and ABTS show that strychnobiflavone increase the scavenging activity in a concentration-dependent manner due to the phenolic and flavonoid contents. This study revealed that strychnobiflavone is one of the promising and an effective compound for the antioxidant agent.
