Abstract

The present study was carried out to investigate the in-vitro antioxidant and anticholinesterase potential of the bark extracts of Alstonia scholaris. The ethylacetate and methanolic extracts of the bark was prepared by successive soxhlet extraction method. The in-vitro antioxidant and anticholinesterase activity were assessed by DPPH assay and rat brain cholinesterase assay.
