  • Abstract

    Thespesia Populnea (T. populnea ) Linn has been used conventionally to treat various diseases like rheumatism, diabetes and also as an anti-inflammatory agent. In this study, ethanolic extract of T. populnea leaves was screened for chemical constituents (Chemical methods and GC-MS analysis) and pharmacological properties such as antioxidant capacity (DPPH and ABTS models) and antibacterial property (Agar-well diffusion and micro broth dilution methods) by in vitro assays. The leaf extract showed significant antioxidant and antibacterial activities. Preliminary phytochemical screening discloses the presence of bioactive constituents including flavanoids phenols and alkaloids. Results of GC-MS analysis showed 19 different phytocompounds. The present results suggest that the ethnopharmacological role of T. populnea could be attributed from active principles.
