From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. Euclea macrophylla sensu Wild Euclea mayottensis H.

A list of trees, shrubs and woody climbers indigenous or naturalised in Rhodesia. Display spot characters for this species.

Preliminary phytochemical screening of various parts of the plant indicated the presence of different classes of secondary metabolites such as phenols, alkaloids, steroids, terpenoids, anthraquinones, saponins and tannins. It was the main purpose of this paper to evaluate the total phenolic content TPCtotal flavonoid content TFCand antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of leaf extracts of Euclea schimperi. Colorimetric, gravimetric, spectrophotometeric, thin layer chromatography TLC and column chromatography methods were used for analyzing the phytochemical components.

Flowers unisexual,usually on different trees, in axillary inflorescences, small, creamy-white, speckled with brownish glands, sweetly scented.

The inhibition zone diameters ranged between 15 mm and 28 mm. A preliminary checklist of the vascular plants of Mozambique. Insects associated with this species: 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.


The ethanol extracts of all plant parts showed extremely high antioxidant activities at all levels of concentrations specially the root–bark extract In conclusion, this study demonstrated that Euclea schimperi was rich in phytochemical constituents and the tested schimper extracts had moderate to high antimicrobial activity and potent antioxidant activity.

These findings indicated that this plant was rich in different chemical constituents, which may be responsible for the many pharmacological actions. Trees of Southern Africa 3rd edition. Antioxidant capacity and IC50 values were estimated for each extract using vitamin C as a standard scgimperi. The recorded IC50 value for chloroform extract of the roots 0. The ethanol extracts of different parts of the plant exhibited broad spectrum activity against the tested strains as compared to petroleum ether and chloroform extracts.

This study was performed to determine the phytochemical constituents of this plant and to evaluate the antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of these constituents.

Preliminary checklist of the plants of Botswana. The level of DPPH scavenging activity in chloroform extracts of euckea parts of the plant was higher than that of vitamin C at all level of concentrations. Bioactive components from medicinal plants are said to be responsible for the antioxidant and antimicrobial effects of plant extracts. Antimicrobial activity was carried out against five standard bacterial trains Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia and Salmonella typhi and two standard fungal strains Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger.


The ethanol extract of the root-bark exhibited the strongest activity 28 mm against Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonia.
