This study was carried out with an objective to investigate the antioxidant potential of extract from leaves of Schrebera swietenioides using DPPH (1,1, Diphenyl 2 picryl hydrazyl) radical scavenging method. Schrebera swietenioides leaf extract was prepared by crushing leaves into a fine powder and extracted with water by cold extraction method. Its antioxidant activity was compared with the standard ascorbic acid. EC50 for standard ascorbic acid was found to be 16.71 µg/ml whereas for test (Schrebera swietenioides leaves extract) it was 26.62 µg/ml. This study confirms the antioxidant activity of leaves of Schrebera swietenioides using DPPH radical scavenging method.
