	  abstract     = {Aqueous ethanol and aqueous acetone extracts of
Moringa oleifera (outer pericarp of immature fruit and flower) and
Sesbania grandiflora white variety (flower and leaf) were examined
for radical scavenging capacities and antioxidant activities. Ethanol
extract of S. grandiflora (flower and leaf) and acetone extract of M.
oleifera (outer pericarp of immature fruit and flower) contained
relatively higher levels of total dietary phenolics than the other
extracts. The antioxidant potential of the extracts were assessed by
employing different in vitro assays such as reducing power assay,
DPPH˙, ABTS˙+ and ˙OH radical scavenging capacities,
antihemolytic assay by hydrogen peroxide induced method and metal
chelating ability. Though all the extracts exhibited dose dependent
reducing power activity, acetone extract of all the samples were
found to have more hydrogen donating ability in DPPH˙ (2.3% -
65.03%) and hydroxyl radical scavenging systems (21.6% - 77.4%)
than the ethanol extracts. The potential of multiple antioxidant
activity was evident as it possessed antihemolytic activity (43.2 % to
68.0 %) and metal ion chelating potency (45.16 - 104.26 mg EDTA/g
sample). The result indicate that acetone extract of M. oleifera (OPIF
and flower) and S. grandiflora (flower and leaf) endowed with
polyphenols, could be utilized as natural antioxidants/nutraceuticals.},
