Mart. is used in both folk and traditional system of medicine. In the present study, H.P.T.L.C analysis and antioxidant [2,2- diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl hydrate (DPPH) assay] activity of methanolic extract of whole plant of Digera muricata were investigated.The methanolic extract was obtained by soxhlation for 72 hrs. The methanolic extract showed elevated DPPH scavenging activity, and had a promising activity which increased with concentration. A positive correlation was established between the level of phytoconstituents and antioxidant activities.
