Abstract A petroleum ether extract PEE and a methanolic extract ME of aerial parts of Salvia bicolor Desf were prepared, and their chemical compositions and antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antimicrobial activities were evaluated. GC-MS analysis of the PEE revealed the presence of 20 compounds in the unsaponifiable matter, among which β-sitosterol and β-amyrin constituting 24.75% and 15.62%, respectively were the main constituents, and 21 fatty acids, with linolenic acid and erucic acid being the main fatty acid constituents 21.65% and 16.65%, respectively. HPLC-MS analysis of the methanol extract for individual phenolics revealed the presence of 14 phenolic acids; protocatchuic acid was predominant 75.22 mg-g dry sample, followed by p-coumaric, gallic and synergic acids 70.27, 68.26 and 54.38 mg-g dry weight, respectively. HPLC-MS analysis of flavonoid contents revealed the presence of five flavonoid compounds, among which luteolin 7-O-glucoside and apigenin were the major constituents 120.25 mg-100g dry sample and 88.48 mg-100g dry sample, respectively. The antioxidant activities of both extracts were evaluated using the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl DPPH assay, and the total antioxidant capacity was determined in terms of GAE gallic acid equivalents. Anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities were evaluated using the rat paw edema and hot plate testing methods, respectively. The antimicrobial activities of both the PEE and ME were examined by means of the disk-diffusion method. The Salvia bicolor PEE and ME exhibited significant antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, in addition to antimicrobial effects against the selected microorganisms.
