Sansevieria plants are known as ornamental plants that are able to ward off free radicals in nature, this plant allegedly potential as antioxidant. This study aimed to determine the antioxidant activity of three etanol plant extracts from Sansevieria genus, Sansevieria trifasciata, Sansevieria green tiger and Sansevieria zeylanica, were tested by using the 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryhydrazyl (DPPH) radical-scavenging assay. This method measuring the IC50 of the extracts. The plant extracts that point the highest antioxidant activity were Sansevieria trifasciata, the most potential as an alternative to antioxidant substitutes for vitamin C with an IC50 value of 9.44 ppm. This result would be promising sources for developing anticancer agents. Flavonoids are the principle elements for toxicity activity and are promising compounds for use as antioxidant agents.
