The present study was designed to check the antioxidant activity of Sesbania Grandiflora. The extraction of fruit of Sesbania Grandiflora was carried out by using solvent aqueous methanol. The antioxidant activity of plant Sesbania Grandiflora determined by using different in vitro antioxidant assays. The TP (Total Phenolic) and TF (Total Flavonoid) contents in extracts of the plant Sesbania Grandiflora were found to be in the range of 48.2±0.74 mcg/mg and 11.75±0.51 mcg/mg, respectively. The DPPH scavenging activity of extract was found to be in the range of 24.13- 64.44%. In conclusion, the extract of Sesbania Grandiflora was found to have potent antioxidant activity which may be due the abundant of phenolic and flavonoid contents.
