Table 2 Total phenolic and flavonoid contents of C. mimosoides extracts

From: Leaf extract of Caesalpinia mimosoides enhances oxidative stress resistance and prolongs lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans

Extraction solvents Total Phenolic Content Total Flavonoid Content
mg GAE/g dry weight extract mg QE/g dry weight extract
Hexane 5.35 ± 0.85 1.76 ± 0.32
Ethyl acetate 323.21 ± 6.45 8.89 ± 0.39
Methanol 460.25 ± 3.08 12.55 ± 0.43
  1. Values are expressed as the mean ± SD (n = 3)
  2. Methanolic extract of CM expressed the highest total phenolic and flavonoid contents when compared to CM extracted by ethyl acetate and hexane
