From: Hepatoprotective potential of Fagonia olivieri DC. against acetaminophen induced toxicity in rat

  Total phenolics (mg gallic acid equivalent/g) Total flavonoids (mg rutin equivalent/g) Extraction yield (%)
Methanol extract 32 ± 1.202e 16 ± 0.881e 12.56
n-Hexane fraction 0.00 0.00 2.21
Chloroform fraction 44 ± 1.263d 26 ± 0.666d 1.98
Ethyl acetate fraction 106 ± 0.892a 40 ± 1.155b 8.25
n-Butanol fraction 48 ± 2.517c 32 ± 0.873c 9.025
Aqueous fraction 66 ± 0.333b 50 ± 1.764a 10.59
  1. Mean ± SE (n = 3). Means not sharing the same letter (a-e) are significantly different (LSD) at p < 0.01 probability level in each column. Crude methanol extract yield was based on the dry weight of powder whereas the fractions yield was based on the dry weight of crude methanol extract
