The starting point for plant-based new drug discovery should be identification of the right candidate plants by applying traditional system of medicine. In many cases, the people claim the good remedy of such kind of plant -based products or herbal products. Chromatographical methods of separations of bioactive principles from the plants are the most commonly used technique for the identification, quantification and characterisation purpose. Herbal medicinal plants are getting the paramount importance in the field of therapeutics, as most of the pharmaceutical industries are depend in on plants or plant materials for the production of pharmaceutical compounds. Therefore, it is of interest to investigate the antioxidant activity by DPPH-radical scavenging method in vitro. The results of the present study indicate that the chloroform extract of C.cerasiformis possess the strong antioxidant activities. Key words: Ctenolepsis cerasiformis, Antioxidants, Bioactive molecules, Free radicals, Pharmaceutical compounds.
