Determination of Physicochemical parameters and DPPH radical scavenging activity of Chenopodium album Linn


Authors and affiliation (s):

Abstract:

Aim: The existing study was conceded out to offer requisite detail of Phytochemical and Physicochemical parameters
and radical scavenging activity of the plant Chenopodium album Linn. Materials and Method: In the present work,
different extracts of Chenopodium album Linn (C.album) were prepared and tested for the presence of secondary
metabolites and various physico-chemical parameters for the phytochemical analysis of plant. All polar extract were
tested for the free radical scavenging activity. Results: The pharmacognostical results exposed the presence of
flavonoids, tannins and alkaloids in the plant and significant physico-chemical values. Utmost free radical scavenging
activity was found to be in butanol fraction and lowly in dichloromethane extract. Conclusion: It may be concluded that
C. album Linn could be a source of therapeutic and natural scavenging agent.
