Preparation and antioxidant activities of important traditional plant polysaccharides.

Topics Discussed in This Paper. Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Activities of Phytoconstituents from Euclea schimperi. Show full item record. References Publications referenced by this paper.

An overview on natural polysaccharides with antioxidant properties. The ethanol extracts of all plant parts showed extremely high antioxidant activities at all levels of concentrations specially the root–bark extract Pages 63 – Antioxidant capacity and IC50 values were estimated for each extract using vitamin C as a standard antioxidant.

In conclusion, this study demonstrated that Euclea schimperi was rich in phytochemical constituents and the tested ethanol extracts had moderate to high antimicrobial activity and potent antioxidant activity. The quantitative analysis revealed that the leaves were rich in total polyphenols, flavonoids and saponins as 10 compared with the other plant parts.

These findings could support the traditional use of this plant in the treatment of many diseases URI: The major phytochemical components of the leaves, stems, stem-bark, roots and root-bark were qualitatively determined in each extract.

Antimicrobial activity was carried out against five standard bacterial trains Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia and Salmonella typhi and two standard fungal strains Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger.

These findings indicated schimperii this plant was rich in different chemical constituents, which may be responsible for the many pharmacological actions. Perrier Euclea racemosa Murray subsp. Sabonet, Pretoria and Gaborone Page Thin layer chromatography method confirmed the presence of these compounds. Total polyphenols, saponins, alkaloids and flavonoids were quantified in each plant part.
