Visible-light irradiation of aqueous-ethanolic solutions of Riboflavin (Rf) in the individual presence of the flavone chrysin (Chr) and its complex with Cu(2+) ([Chr2Cu]; 2:1 L:M) generates singlet molecular oxygen O2((1)Δg), that concomitantly interact with both flavone derivatives. Overall (kt) and reactive (kr) rate constants in the order of(More)
Considering the significance of visible light-promoted reactions in complex biological media, the photo-oxidation of the amino acids (AAs) tyrosine (tyr) and tryptophan (trp) was studied in the presence of the naturally occurring oxidative scavenger uracil (ur). The involved photoprocesses, studied at pH 7 and 9, are driven through the reactive oxygen(More)
A 1:1 complex between 3,3'-dihydroxyflavone (DHF) and La(III) (DHF-La(III)) is formed in methanolic solution with the relatively high apparent stability constant value of 2.3×10(6) and a calculated standard entropy change of 88.2 J mol(-1) K(-1), both at 25 °C. The photophysical properties of the complex and the free flavonoid are discussed in comparison to(More)
The antioxidant properties of a series of synthetic and natural flavonoids towards the oxygenated species superoxide radical anion (*O2-) enzimatically generated, were evaluated. 7-Hydroxyflavonol, 7,3'-dihydroxyflavonol and 3'-hydroxyflavonol were synthesised, with a systematic variation of the OH substitution on positions C3, C7, C3'and C4', and their(More)
OBJECTIVES The study was focused on the activity of propolis from Amaicha del Valle, Argentina (ProAV) as a promoter and scavenger of Riboflavin (Rf)--photogenerated reactive oxygen species (ROS). METHODS Through a kinetic and mechanistic study, employing stationary and time-resolved photochemical and electrochemical techniques, the protecting activity of(More)
Kinetic and mechanistic aspects on the stability of the flavones (FL) quercetin (Que), morin (Mor) and rutin (Rut), in methanolic solution and in the presence of reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by visible light-promoted riboflavin (Rf, vitamin B(2)) photoirradiation were studied. The system was chosen as a model for the evaluation of the in vivo(More)
