Abstract: Abstract: The concentration and antioxidant activity of the known phenolics macluraxanthone, rutin, chlorogenic acid, and psoralen present in M. pomifera, F. carica, and F. elastica extracts were determined to evaluate the plant extracts potency as new antioxidant suppliers. The quantification of the compounds was obtained by HPLC-DAD. The antioxidant activity of plant extracts and compounds was evaluated using DPPH and ABTS methods. The results seem to indicate that these extracts can be promising as new antioxidant suppliers, particularly F. carica and F. elastica leaves because only about 30% and about 50%, respectively, of the total activity was due to the phenolics determined.
