The gallic acid and several n-alkyl gallates, with the same number of hydroxyl substituents, varying only in the side carbonic chain length, with respective lipophilicity defined through the C log P, were studied. It evidenced the structure-activity relationship of the myeloperoxidase activity inhibition and the hypochlorous acid scavenger property, as well(More)
The n-alkyl esters of gallic acid (CAS 13857-8) have a diverse range of uses as antioxidants in food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Pharmaceutical studies performed with these compounds have found that they have many therapeutic potentialities including anti-cancer, antiviral and antimicrobial properties. However, more interest has been devoted(More)
The antioxidant activity of a methanolic extract of Bombax ceiba was evaluated using several antioxidant assays, in terms of its: (i) ability to scavenge DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl) and hydroxyl free radicals; (ii) action against lipid peroxidation (in rat liver microsomes and soy bean phosphatidylcholine liposomes), induced by ascorbyl radicals(More)
Self-assembly of dithiothreitol (DTT) on Au(111) from solution deposition has been studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electrochemical data. DTT molecules self-assemble on Au(111) in a lying-down configuration irrespective of the concentration and temperature. XPS and electrochemical data indicate a DTT surface coverage of theta approximately(More)
Violacein, a violet pigment produced by Chromobacterium violaceum, has attracted much attention in recent literature due to its pharmacological properties. In this work, the antioxidant properties of violacein were investigated. The reactivity with oxygen and nitrogen reactive species and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH), a stable free radical, was(More)
