ABSTRACT
Extract and its different fractions of mature pod wall of Cicer arietinum Linn. (Family: Fabaceae) was assessed for its antioxidant activity by in vitro methods. Antioxidant activity was studied using 1, 1- Diphenyl-2- Picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), nitric oxide scavenging activity, hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity, reducing power assay. Antioxidant activities compared with ascorbic acid as standard antioxidant. Quantitative analysis of antioxidative components like total phenolic content, total antioxidant capacity were estimated using spectrophotometric methods. Results showed that extracts and fractions exhibited significant DPPH, nitric oxide and hydrogen peroxide activity. Total phenolic content and total antioxidant capacity of ethanol extract and ethyl acetate fraction was estimated. From results, it is concluded that flavonoids and related polyphenols present in Cicer arietinum extract may be responsible for the activity
