The purpose of the work was to evaluate the Fe-chelating activity of freeze drying assisted ultrasonicated hydroethanolic leaf extracts of Conocarpus lancifolius Engl. along with 1H-NMR based classification of metabolites in most active extract. The finding revealed that 60% ethanolic extract was the most active fraction regarding Fe-chelating activity with value of 75.4 ± 0.6% followed by 80% ethanolic extract having chelating value of 69.24±1.02%. The least Fe-chelating activity was exhibited by aqueous extract. The statistical analysis revealed that the Fe-chelating activity by 60% ethanolic extract was significantly higher than other fractions except EDTA which was used as standard chelating agent. The 1HNMR technique predicted the presence of aromatic secondary metabolites of polyphenolic origin due to numerous peaks in respective regions. The peaks in carbohydrate and organic acid regions were also observed. The research outcomes suggested that C. lancifolius may be workable choice to move further for the development of cure and management practices for iron load based oxidative stress oriented diseases including diabetes mellitus type II.
