In this study, we evaluated total phenolic content (TP), total flavonoids (TF), and total non-flavonoids (TNF) in 90% methanol dry leaf extracts of four invasive plant species using spectrophotometric methods. We also determined the antioxidative capacity (AC) in 70% ethanolic dry leaf extract by three standard assays (ABTS, DPPH, and FRAP).
