Abstract

The present study was aimed to evaluate the total phenolic content present in entire herb of Euphorbia hirta by using Folin ciocalteau procedure and to determine its antioxidant property by using DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl ) free radical scavenging method. The content of phenolic compounds indicated that these compounds contribute to the antioxidant activity. The Euphorbia hirta can be regarded as promising entrant for natural plant sources of antioxidants with high value.
