Antioxidant Activities of Orange Peel Extracts

  title={Antioxidant Activities of Orange Peel Extracts},
  author={Ah. E. Hegazy and M. I. Ibrahium},
This work aimed to evaluate the efficiency of different organic solvents such as, methanol, ethanol, dichloromethane, acetone, hexane and ethyl acetate for extraction of ( flavonoids and polyphenolic compounds(TFC and TPC respectively) from the orange peel. Also, the effect of these solvents on the yield percentage, chelating activity, antioxidant/radical scavenging capacity and reducing power ability of the produced extracts were investigated. The results revealed that all extracts of the… Expand
