Objective: In  the  present  study,  the  ability  of  scavenging  free  radicals  of  the  Methanol, Chloroform and Ethyl acetate of Solanum torvum   seed . Materials and Methods:  S. torvum  seed was  determined  by  using  1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), 2, 2’-Azinobis-(3-Ethylbenzothiazoline-6-Sulfonic Acid) (ABTS+), Ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP), Nitric  oxide  scavenging  assay  (NO), Superoxide  anion radical scavenging (SOD), Hydroxyl radical scavenging assay (HRSA), Hydrogen Peroxide radical assay (HPRA). Results: The results indicate that the Ethyl acetate seed extract of Solanum torvum has good antioxidant potential and it can be regarded as promising candidates for natural plant sources of antioxidants. Conclusion: S. torvum seed can be further studied to isolate the phyto compounds responsible for the antioxidant activity.
