Abstract

Antioxidant potential of different plant parts of Tinospora cordifolia and Argemone maxicana were determined by using DPPH assay and ascorbic acid as standard compound (IC50: 10 μg/ml). The maximum antioxidant potential in A. Maxicana was found in leaf (IC50: 29μg/ml) followed by stem (IC50: 95μg/ml), Seed (IC50: 97μg/ml) and root (IC50: 111μg/ml). In T. cordifolia leaf (IC50: 37μg/ml) showed maximum antioxidant activity then the roots (IC50: 172 μg/ml).
