Physico- chemical investigation and antioxidant activity studies on extracts of Eruca sativa seed
AbstractAlong with the other medicinal plants Eruca sativa has remarkable potential against various diseases. Present work is based on the estimation of antioxidant potential of dist. Water, ethanolic and methanolic extracts of E. sativa seed oil. On phytochemical determination it was exposed that different plant extracts/fractions contains alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, phenols, carbohydrates, steroids and proteins. Its physico-chemical screening was concluded the saponification value and fat value of the E. sativa seed oil. Antioxidant activity was evaluated by using DPPH free radical scavenging scheme. The maximum (30.601.1) anti-oxidative potential was exhibited by aqueous extract of E. sativa seed oil. IC50 was calculated maximum 126.2 in eq. extract of E. sativa seed oil. From current study, it is concluded that this plant seed oil could be used as a source of natural antioxidant and medicinal purposes
