The phenolic compounds of Rumex induratus leaves were determined by HPLC-DAD-MS/MS-ESI. The results revealed a profile composed of 19 compounds: caffeoyl-hexoside, two p-coumaroyl-hexoside isomers, feruloyl-hexoside, sinapoyl-hexoside, 6-C-hexosyl-quercetin, 8-C-hexosyl-luteolin, 6-C-hexosyl-luteolin, 6-C-hexosyl-apigenin, 3-O-hexosyl-quercetin,(More)
A field experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of fertilization level on the phenolic composition of tronchuda cabbage ( Brassica oleracea L. var. costata DC) external and internal leaves. Eight different plots were constituted: a control without fertilization, one with organic matter, and six experiments with conventional fertilizers(More)
The free amino acid profile of 18 samples of tronchuda cabbage ( Brassica oleracea L. var. costata DC) leaves, harvested at three different months, was determined by HPLC/UV-vis. The tronchuda cabbage leaves total free amino acid content varied from 3.3 to 14.4 g/kg fresh weight. Generally, arginine was the major compound, followed by proline, threonine,(More)
Laminaria abyssalis fronds were either collected at the Brazilian costal area - 40 meters below sea level - or grown in the laboratory. The photochemical yield as defined by the Fv/Fm and the Fo - the dark fluorescence level when all PSII centers are open - varied with the distance from the stipe to the tip of the blade in wild grown fronds while it stayed(More)
Microcystins (MCs) are toxins produced by cyanobacteria which are common organisms in the phytoplankton of eutrophic lakes, rivers and freshwater reservoirs. In the present work, a novel method of liquid chromatography-electrospray ion trap tandem mass spectrometry (LC/ESI/Ion trap-MS/MS), operated in the negative ionization mode, was developed for the(More)
Targeted metabolite analysis of aqueous extract of Rumex induratus leaves, in terms of phenolic compounds and organic acids, and the study of its antioxidant activity against the DPPH(*) radical, a reactive oxygen species, hypochlorous acid, and a reactive nitrogen species, nitric oxide ((*)NO), were performed. The samples were collected in several(More)
