Most of the fast research indicated that plants are good source in treating many of the diseases affecting mankind. Plants contain a wide variety of phytochemical constituents, which are secondary metabolites and are used either directly or indirectly in the pharmaceutical industry. 'For centuries, man has effectively used various components of plants or their extracts for the treatment of many diseases. Aqueous extract of this plant were discovered in the phytochemical analysis and results indicated that extract have high amount of steroids, tri terpenoids, tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, saponins, glycosides, gums and mucilage and phenolic compounds. In the present study ether, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts of plant Cassia auriculata were subjected for antioxidant activity. The extracts were screened for their phytochemical constituents by standard protocols' and were shown to contain carbohydrates, proteins, alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, saponins and tannins. Further studies are needed to determine the precise active principles from Cassia auriculata and evaluate the antioxidant activity of ethanolic extract of Cassia auriculata in various in-vitro systems. The ethanolic extract of Cassia auriculata has shown effective antioxidant activity in all assay techniques. The results obtained in the present study indicate that the plant Cassia auriculata is a potential source of natural antioxidants.
