This study was conducted to evaluate the antioxidant property of Baccaurea ramiflora. The plant belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family and locally used for the treatment of tumors, boils and buboes. This study provides a scientific basis for the use of Baccaurea ramiflora in traditional medicine. The seeds were extracted using methanol and different fractions were obtained using different organic solvents, e.g., dichloromethane, petroleum ether, chloroform. All these fractions were subjected to antioxidant activity determination. Among all the fractions, aqueous soluble fraction showed highest level of total phenolic content of 35.65 mg of GAE / gm of extractives comparing to the others. Whereas, for the DPPH free radical scavenging assay, petroleum ether fractions provided the highest IC50 value of 556.29 g / ml.
