Abstract

The aim of this study was to characterize the phytochemical composition and evaluation of antioxidant and antibacterial potentials of Tamarindus indica leaves in different in vitro assays.The antioxidant activity of different solvent extracts of leaves of Tamarindus indica were studied using FRAP assay, DPPH free radical scavenging activity and Superoxide peroxidase activity.Antibacterial activity against two Gram-positive (Bacillus subtilis,and, Staphylococcus aureus) and three Gram negative (Klebsiella pneumonia,Proteus vulgaris and Escherichia coli) bacterial species was investigated using agar well diffusion method. Significant activity was observed against the tested microorganisms. The results of antibacterial screening assaydisplayed broad spectrum antibacterial activity by Tamarindus indica.
