Antioxidant Activity of Seed Extract and Fractions of Monodora Tenuifolia (Annonaceae)



The antioxidant activity of the seed extract and fractions of Monodora tenuifolia (Fam. Annonaceae) was evaluated. The Monodora tenuifolia seed was extracted with pet ether 40-60°C to produce the crude extract. Fractionation of the extract by column chromatography using pet ether 60-80°C and diethyl-ether produced 2 fractions (F1) and (F2).
