The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antioxidant potential of the ethyl acetate extract of the endophytic fungi isolated from Lannea coromandelica (Houtt.) Merr (Anacardiaceae).The dominant fungi isolated from Lannea coromandelica were Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus and Alternaria alternata, they were subjected to antioxidant activity by diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method. All the extracts showed significant antioxidant potential and the antioxidant nature of the extracts were dependent on the concentration.. There was a positive correlation between the phenolic content and the antioxidant capacity of the endophyte extracts. Further work is needed to isolate the exact compound which is responsible for antioxidant activity and further characterization will be done in the future.
