To screen the bioactive compound and to analyze the antioxidant properties of selected medicinal plant. The bioactive compound was isolated from the medicinal plant Cassia auriculata and it was identified as oleanolic acid by different spectral studies viz., FT-IR (Fourier Transform Infrared (spectroscopy), 1H NMR and 13C NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). The leaf extract of the Cassia auriculata significantly shows the antioxidant properties in higher level against the entire test. To understand the pharmacological role of the isolated bioactive compound oleanolic acid, it has become important to study. This research can be considered as an important preliminary study on the isolation and identification of bioactive compound from Indian medicinal plants that may be useful in the treatment of microbial diseases in the future.
