Abstract: In this study, the antioxidant activity of the leaf extracts of P.thonningii was evaluated using the DPPH free radical scavenging assay. The butanol fraction of P.thonningii exhibited the higher activity (EC50=15.39±0.01 μg mlˉ¹), while crude extract of P.thonningii had the activity(EC50=10.75±0.10 μg mlˉ¹). These results suggested strong antioxidant activity potentials of the plant.
