Table 1 Phytochemical contents of 5% leachate of L. leucocephala leaves

From: Leucaena leucocephala leachate compromised membrane integrity, respiration and antioxidative defence of water hyacinth leaf tissues

Leachate Total polyphenols (mg GAE/mL) Total flavonoids (mg QE/mL) Total hydroxycinnamic acids (mg CAE/mL) Mimosine (mg/mL)
24 h 0.49 ± 0.01 0.52 ± 0.01 0.13 ± 0.01 0.28 ± 0.00
48 h 1.31 ± 0.02 1.45 ± 0.03 0.36 ± 0.01 0.91 ± 0.04
  1. Data are means ± SE (n = 3). The values for 48 h leachate were all significantly different from those of the 24 h leachate according to Student’s T test at p < 0.05.
