Abstract: This Study was conducted to assess the antioxidant and mycochemical properties of Trametes polyzona. Tramates polyzona is a cosmopolitan mushroom. This mushroom was collected from dead woods in farmland around Akungba - Akoko. The mushroom was divided into three portions. The first portion was fermented using solid state fermentation, the second portion was fermented using liquid state fermentation while the third portion was not fermented and the mycochemical constituents were extracted using methanol and acetone. Mycochemical analysis revealed the presence of saponin, tannin, flavonoid, terpenoid, alkaloid, cardiac glycosides in the mushroom extract. The flavonoid (23.91 mg/g), total phenol (282.99 mg/g), iron chelation (25.44), DPPH (37.50%) and ferric reducing property (35.25 %) of raw acetone was the highest when compared with extracts obtained from submerged and solid state fermented T. Polyzona. while the ABTS (3.01%) of solid state methanol was the highest when compared with extracts obtained from raw and submerged T. polyzona. Data obtained from this study revealed that extracts of raw and fermented T. Polyzona contain useful phytochemicals. Moreover, the extracts also exhibit good antioxidant property.
