Objective: To evaluate the antioxidant potential of different extract/fractions of Anthocephalus cadamba (A. cadamba) (Roxb.) Miq. (Rubiaceae) and study the tentative identification of their active constituents. Methods: The extract/fractions were screened for antioxidant activity using various in vitro assays viz. DPPH assay, ABTS assay, superoxide anion radical scavenging assay, wreadsu cdientge rpmoiwneerd a bssya cy oalnordi mpleatsrmici dm DetNhAod n. icAkni nugl tarsas-apye. rTfoortaml apnhceen oLlCic- ecloenctternots porf aeyx-trqaucat/dfrraucptoiolen-s tfirmacet ioonf sf liogf hAt . mcaadssa mspbeac. trRoemseutlrtys :m Tehteh oedth wyla sa cuesteadte tfor aacntiaolny swe atsh efo aucntdiv teo cboen mstiotsute anctsti voef ferxatcrtaicotn/ (iEn AaAllC t hfrea catsisoany)s w aass c2o1m.2p4a red to other extract/fractions.
