In ethanol extract, the amount of total polyphenol in the leaves 0. This study was performed to determine the phytochemical constituents of this plant and to evaluate the antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of these constituents. To put it differently, TPC of the E. Euclea schimperi Ebenaceae is a plant of Erkowit, eastern Sudan, used as a medicinal plant by native people Hadandawa for the treatment of many diseases.

Shrub or small evergreen tree. Some features of this site may not work without it. The level of DPPH scavenging activity in chloroform extracts of all parts of the plant was higher than that of vitamin C at schimpsri level of concentrations. Thin layer chromatography method confirmed the presence of these compounds. Recent trends and methods in antimicrobial drug discovery from plant sources.

Male flowers schimpefi longer pedicels forming a more suclea inflorescence. The major phytochemical components of eucela leaves, stems, stem-bark, roots and root-bark were qualitatively determined in each extract.

Colorimetric, gravimetric, spectrophotometeric, thin layer chromatography TLC and column chromatography methods were used for analyzing the phytochemical components. Leaves, spirally arranged, subopposite or whorled, usually at the ends of branches obovate to linear-oblanceolate, cm long, leathery, glossy light green above, dull and paler below, hairless; margin entire often thickened.
