Mounting research has been performed and published on natural antioxidants, more so than on synthetic ones, as key molecules that control oxidative damage and its pathway to disease. Since the discovery of vitamins, various fully synthetic or natural-identical compounds have been developed as stable small molecules translated into constantly active and completely controlled products which are widely exploited in the food and pharmaceutical industries. There is currently a debate within the…

ANTIOXIDANTS IN FOOD AND PHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH .

In this work we provide a general overview about the natural and synthetic antioxidants and studies carried out to improve their potential. These compounds are able to scavenge free radicals that

Antioxidants: Classification, Natural Sources, Activity/Capacity Measurements, and Usefulness for the Synthesis of Nanoparticles

TLDR
This paper presents the classification of antioxidants and non-enzymatic methods of testing antioxidant capacity in vitro, with particular emphasis on methods based on nanoparticles, and presents recently published research on the green synthesis of nanoparticles.

Are natural antioxidants better – and safer – than synthetic antioxidants?

Antioxidants are necessary in the Western diet as it is rich in polyenoic fatty acids, which are easily oxidized with formation of free radicals that are harmful if present in higher amounts.

Ebselen and Analogues: Pharmacological Properties and Synthetic Strategies for Their Preparation

TLDR
This review aimed to collect all the papers focused on the biological evaluation of ebselen and its close analogues, covering the timeline between 2016 and most of 2021, and evidences that, even if it lacks specificity when tested in vitro, it proved to be always well tolerated in vivo.

Development of Novel Indole-Based Bifunctional Aldose Reductase Inhibitors/Antioxidants as Promising Drugs for the Treatment of Diabetic Complications

TLDR
This article reviews a series of indole-based bifunctional aldose reductase inhibitors/antioxidants (ARIs/AOs) developed during recent years and structure–activity relationships with respect to carboxymethyl pharmacophore regioisomerization and core scaffold modification are discussed.
