|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.|
