Abstract: The purpose of this study was to estimate the Vitamin C and Vitamin E content of selected plant leaves to know their antioxidant property. The leaves were collected from different places of Nagaon district, Assam as very little study has been done from this area. After collection the leaves were sun dried and ground with the mixer grinder and stored in plastic containers at room temperature tilled analysed. Vitamin C and Vitamin E were estimated by Spectrophotometer method. After analysis it was observed that Vitamin C content was 10.37, 17.18, 31.25, 11.62, 9.87, 12.20, 17.44, 22.09, 4.65, 19.18, 9.3 and 18.02 mg/100g and Vitamin E content was 45.05, 35.54, 53,98, 49.46, 41.57, 29.39, 37.11, 47.43, 42.96, 48.99, 47.54, 49.34µ/gm for Artocarpus heterophyllus, Carica papaya, Terminalia bellirica Tinospora cordifolia, Bryophyllum pinnatum, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia arjuna, Aegle marmelos, Murraya koenigii, Xanthium strumarium, Syzygium cumini, Psidium guajava respectively. The data generated may be useful in exploring medicinal properties of plants.
