Oxidants contribute to more than one hundred disorders in humans. The ethanol extract of Carmona retusa was screened for antioxidant activity using 1,1-Diphenyl-2-Picryl Hydroxyl (DPPH) scavenging, Ferric Reducing Antioxidant Power (FRAP), hydrogen peroxide scavenging capacity (H2O2), reducing power assay and determination of the total antioxidant capacity by phosphomolybdenum method. The ethanol extract exhibited maximum antioxidant activity in DPPH, hydrogen peroxide. The reducing power and FRAP increased with increasing concentration of the sample. The scavenging activity of Carmona retusa found maximum in the DPPH, FRAP, hydrogen peroxide scavenging and reducing power assay of 95.35%, 9.296%, 78.539% and 82.9% respectively at 400μg/mL concentration with IC50 values of 93.35, 3.36, 12.62 and 20.79 μg/ml respectively. Percentage of antioxidant capacity with respect to one gram of dried plant extract in phosphomolybdenum method was found to be 8.875. The antioxidant activity of the sample was comparable with that of the standard ascorbic acid. This is the primary and preliminary work in Carmona retusa.
