The present study showed that the ethanolic extracts from the bark of Acacia confusa exhibited a strong antioxidant activity. Among all the fractions from ethanolic extracts of bark, the EtOAc soluble fraction exhibited the best antioxidant performance. Furthermore, following by CC and HPLC, 11 pure phenolic compounds were isolated and identified from the ethanolic extracts.
