Cinnamic acid, chemically known as 3-phenyl-2-propenoic acid is a white-colored crystalline substance which has a broad spectrum of pharmacological actions including antioxidant activity. It is used principally in the flavoring and perfumery industries. The identity, purity, integrity and suitability of the acid were ascertained and established prior to the derivatization reactions. Furthermore, a simple titrimetric method for its assay was designed.  The esterification and selective reduction…

Oleuropein evaluated in vitro and in vivo as an antioxidant

TLDR
In vitro, oleuropein had a remarkable antioxidant activity, and serum samples obtained from treated animals exhibited an antioxidant activity comparable to controls, when compared with the control sample.

Quick Preparative Separation of Natural Naphthopyranones with Antioxidant Activity by High-Speed Counter-Current Chromatography

TLDR
Paepalantine showed a good antioxidant activity when assayed by the DPPH radical spectrophotometric assay and was separated in a preparative scale from the ethanolic extract of the capitula of Paepalanthus bromelioides by high-speed counter-current chromatography.

ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF COMPOUNDS ISOLATED FROM PYCNANTHUS ANGOLENSIS (WELW.) WARB AND BYROPHYLLUM PINNATUM (LAM.) OKEN

TLDR
These compounds, most especially NG-1b could be further worked on with the aim of improving on the observed antioxidant activity through in-vitro structural activity relationship studies (SARS) and probably in- vivo clinical trials.

beta-Carotene: an unusual type of lipid antioxidant.

TLDR
New experiments in vitro show that beta-carotene belongs to a previously unknown class of biological antioxidants, and exhibits good radical-trapping antioxidant behavior only at partial pressures of oxygen significantly less than 150 torr, the pressure of oxygen in normal air.

Plants as natural antioxidants

TLDR
The present review includes a brief account of research reports on plants with antioxidant potential, as well as some synthetic antioxidants reported to be dangerous for human health.
