Objectives: The present study is focused on the comparative appraisal of physico-chemical characteristics and free radical scavenging action of methanol extract of Punica granatum L. peel obtained from two different herb suppliers. Methodology: The dried fruit peels of P. granatum were procured from two suppliers with batch code of #4 and #5. The various physico-chemical parameters of two batches were analyzed and compared. The well-authenticated and validated samples were then extracted with methanol and evaluated for their free radical scavenging potential by 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl assay. Results: The results obtained showed that peel extract from batch #4 has a good anti-radical potential against DPPH free radicals as compared to batch #5. This might be attributed to the better physico-chemical characteristics of batch #4 in comparison to #5. Conclusion: The study suggests that the better physico-chemical characteristics of plant samples may advocate their potent bioactive efficacy substantiating superior pharmaceutical significance.
