Scientific Study & Antioxidant Activity of Mature Fruit Kernels of the Plant Monestera Deliciosa Liebm

Sumit Kumar, Rita Saini, S. M. Patil

The present study was carried out to investigate the preliminary phytochemical screening, total phenolic, tannin and falconoid contents, and In-Vitro antioxidant activities of different solvent extracts of Monstera deliciosa Liebm. Fruit kernels. Phytochemical screening was carried out using standard protocols. The antioxidant activity was carried out by DPPH (2, 2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazyl) method. The phytochemical screening study of Monstera deliciosa fruit kernels extracts revealed the presence of important phytochemicals namely Tannins, Steroids, Flavonoids, Alkaloids sugar and Saponins. TLC analysis shows two active compounds in Ethanolic extract which is isolated via column chromatography. Both isolated compounds show the high antioxidant property. Ethanol extract, sample 1 at 100g/ml concentrations exhibited more free radical scavenging activity than the standard Ascorbic acid, whereas sample 2 at 200g/ml concentrations showed more free radical scavenging than the standard Ascorbic acid. The results of this study are suggesting the medicinal importance of this plant due to the presence of various phytochemicals.
