Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is one of the synthetic antioxidant agents commonly used for food additives. In the present study, we determined that four freshwater phytoplankton, including a green alga (Botryococcus braunii Kütz.) and three cyanobacteria [Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii (Wolłosz.) Seenaya et Sabba Raju, Microcystis aeruginosa (Kütz.) and Oscillatoria sp.] were capable of producing this compound. Hexane extracts from all the studied species exhibited various degrees of… 
The synthetic antioxidant Butylated Hydroxytoluene, a naturally occurring constituent of the broom C ytisus triflorus L'Hérit
BHT chemically named 2,6-Bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)-4-methylphenol is one of the synthetic antioxidant agents commonly used in processed Food, Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals. A naturally occurring BHT was
Cholinesterase inhibitory activity, antioxidant properties, and phytochemical composition of Chlorococcum sp. extracts.
In this study, Chlorococcum sp. was investigated for its cholinesterase inhibitory potentials and antioxidant activity. The algal sample was cultivated, harvested, and extracted sequentially using
The characterisation of bioactive compounds from an Egyptian Leptolyngbya sp. strain
TLDR
An investigation into the bioactive metabolites from a benthic, mat-forming strain dominating a polluted wastewater canal in Egypt was conducted, finding butylated hydroxytoluene, which has both antimicrobial and antioxidant activities, seems to enable the isolate to dominate its niche and protect it from adverse conditions.
Effects of different monosaccharides on thermal stability of phycobiliproteins from Oscillatoria sp. (BTA-170): Analysis of kinetics, thermodynamics, colour and antioxidant properties
Abstract Phycobiliproteins (PBPs) are natural colourants and antioxidants derived from cyanobacteria. The purity indexes of extracted C-phycocyanin (C-PC), allophycocyanin (A-PC), and phycoerythrin
Evaluation of antioxidant capacities of green microalgae
Three strains of green microalgae, Chlorococcum sp.C53, Chlorella sp. E53, and Chlorella sp.ED53 were studied for their antioxidant activities. Crude extracts of these microalgae in hot water and in
Cyanobacteria and Microalgae in the Production of Valuable Bioactive Compounds
In the last decades, an increasing attention has been directed toward the possibilities of growing algae commercially. This interest has been partially due to the fact that some strains of microalgae
Identification of a novel phenolic compound in litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) pericarp and bioactivity evaluation.
TLDR
An interesting finding was that butylated hydroxytoluene was detected as a natural antioxidant in this work, which was usually taken as a synthesized antioxidant.
The use of cyanobacterial metabolites as natural medical and biotechnological tools: review article.
TLDR
92 examples of cyanobacterial molecules that are considered the most relevant effects related to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, and anticancer activities as well as their roles that can be used in various biotechnological fields are mentioned.
THE ELITE USE OF BUTYLATED HYDROXYTOLUENE (BHT) AND SODIUM ALGINATE (SA) FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF VERTICILLIUM WILT OF COTTON
Verticillium dahliae Kleb., the cause of Verticillium wilt is a major threat, which is known as “cancer” in cotton. However, currently available conventional fungicides are less effective due to its
Potential for green microalgae to produce hydrogen, pharmaceuticals and other high value products in a combined process
TLDR
This study aims to explore which stress conditions are known to induce the production of different valuable products in comparison to stress reactions leading to hydrogen production, to form a basis for selection of wild type species for a future multi-step process.
