Abstract

The present work is carried out to evaluate biological activities of tubers extracts of Bunium mauritanicum. The methanol extract yield had higher (7.81%) than that of the aqueous extract (6.79%). The quantitative analysis of total phenols and flavonoid revealed that the highest concentration was recorded for the methanoic fraction with 89,442 ± 5,951μg EAG/mg and 4.031 ± 0.141 μg EQ/mg of extract respectively. In addition, the aqueous extract of tubers represents the most important antioxidant activity with an IC50 of 0.14 mg/ml against 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH). Whereas, the two extracts of the tubers have low reducing capacities compared to standard with EC50 equal to 0.048 mg/ml for the methanolic extract, 0.018 mg/ml for the aqueous extract and 0.009 mg/ml for ascorbic acid. The methanolic and aqueous extracts of Bunium mauritanicum reacted positively at least on one of the bacterial strains studied.
