Keywords: antimicrobial, antioxidant, TLC, phytochemicals.

The current research is mainly focused on the bio-products from natural sources. The natural products provide various applications as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiviral agents. Even the potential anticancer drugs have been extracted from natural products. Keeping this in mind, the current research has been implemented to extract the antioxidants from a medicinal tree. The medicinal plants are found to have bioactivities and in this research Solanum xanthocarpum was taken. The different phytochemicals have been present in the plant extract and the extract explored the presence of flavonoids and alkaloids. The root, stem and leaf samples were subjected to chromatographic techniques and the compounds were separated from those extracts. The root, stem and leaf extract from the plant was taken for antimicrobial and antioxidant assessment. The antimicrobial profile was found to be highest in all the three extracts. Similarly, the plant extracts exhibited the antioxidant properties in a highest range at least concentration. The inhibition concentration was evaluated for the plant extracts. Further, the potential compound will be elucidated for the probable structure and biopotentiality.
