Flos Lonicerae, derived from the flower buds of several medicinal Lonicera species, is a commonly used herbal medicine with multiple pharmacological activities, one of the major ones being antioxidant activity. In this study, free radical scavengers in the flower buds of six Lonicera species were screened, identified and quantified by online HPLC-DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) assay coupled with LC quadrupole time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry (Q-TOF MS/MS). The antioxidants were… CONTINUE READING
