Author(s): Suriyavathana Muthukrishnan and Punithavathi Manogaran
Abstract: The sufficient sources of strong natural fiber from the plant kingdom are called as “Vetiveria zizanioides”. It had plentiful properties like antioxidant & inherently containing with good aroma. The soxhlet hot extraction method was used for various extracting vetiver using aqueous, methanol, ethanol, hexane, chloroform and acetone. Under the standard qualitative phytochemical screening method, this particular extract was tested. The results were discovered, the presence of phytochemical structures followed by carbohydrates, proteins, steroids, alkaloids, flavanoids, phenols and at last tannins. The quantitative analysis illustrated that the alkaloids, flavonoids, tannin, saponin and phenol. Free radical scavenging activity were analyzed by DPPH method and Ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) assay and ABTS assay.
