Syzygium samarangense is a potential medicinal plant and is effective for various health issues such as improving digestion, protecting against diabetes, lowering cholesterol to prevent certain types of cancers. The objectives of the study is to evaluate the antioxidant and antibacterial activities of methanol leaves extract of Syzygium samarangense (pink wax apple) and to identify volatile and semi-volatile compounds by GC-MS analysis. Antioxidant testing methods such as radical scavenging assays and reducing power assays were carried out for methanol leaves extract of Syzygium samarangense.
