Abstract

Jasminum azoricum, which belongs to Oleaceae family1, was chosen for this study since there is no detailed research done on this plant for its medicinal properties. The presence of various phytochemicals like tannins, alkaloids, steroids, polyphenol, terpenoids, glycosides, flavonoids, quinones and coumarines were examined using various extracts of Jasminum azoricum. The phytochemicals were further screened to determine the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. The F5 fraction obtained from column chromatography of the acetone extract was examined by DPPH free radical scavenging method which revealed effective antioxidant activity when compared to other fractions. The F5 fraction of acetone extract of J.azoricum was further tested for antimicrobial activity which showed a reasonable anti-microbial activity for B.cereus, S.aureus and Pseudomonas sp.. Hence this leaf extract can be used for the production of novel bioactive substance which can induce antioxidant and antimicrobial defence in humans and can thereby serve to eliminate human ailments.
