Antioxidant Activities of Ethyl acetate Extract and Hexane Extract of Lelak (<i>Uvaria rufa</i> Blume) Leaves
Keywords:Antioxidant, DPPH, Uvaria rufa, IC50
Uvaria rufa Blume is one of the main power plant that has natural antioxidants that are known to inhibit the scavenging free radicals. Â The present study was to evaluate antioxidantÂ activity of ethyl acetate and hexane extracts of leaves of Uvaria rufa Blumes. Â Measurement of antioxidant activity carried out using the DPPH method. Â DPPH radical scavenging activity of Uvaria rufa BlumeÂ of hexane extract and ethyl acetate extract tested showed lower activity than that of a standard compounds: ascorbic acid (IC 50 = 3.781 Âµg/ml ). Extracts of ethyl acetate has strong antioxidant activity which IC50 values was 57.89Âµg/ml respectively and Â extracts of hexaneÂ has weak antioxidant activity which IC50 values wasÂ 87,292 Âµg/ml respectively.
