  journal={World applied sciences journal},
The antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of some spices (M. piperita L., R. coriaria L., T. spicata, S. officinalis, R. officinalis L., C. ovata L., O. vulgare L., L. nobilis L. and C. annum L.) were determined. The higher TEAC values (mmol TE/g extract) were obtained for sage (1.783) and rosemary (1.241). The IC value (mg/ml) ranged between 0.103-4.082 for mint and capers, respectively. Total phenolic 50 contents of sumac (497.87 mg GAE/g) and mint (493.48 mg GAE/g) were higher…

Chemical variation and antioxidant capacity of sumac (Rhus coriaria L.)
Abstract Sumac (Rhus coriaria L.) is a medicinal plant distributed worldwide for its health benefits and its culinary uses as a flavoring agent. The aim of the current study was to detect chemical
Phytochemical Analysis and Antimicrobial/Antioxidant Activity of Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. Rhizome Methanolic Extract
A proper use of medicinal plants requires accurate scientific information and understanding of their chemical constituents. The therapeutic effects in the plants are due to the chemical compounds
Chemical compositions, radical scavenging capacities and antimicrobial activities in seeds of Satureja hortensis L. and Mentha spicata L. subsp. spicata from Turkey.
The present study determined some biological compounds, radical scavenging activity and antimicrobial capacity in seeds of Satureja hortensis L. and Mentha spicata L. subsp. spicata. Alpha-linolenic
In this study, the antioxidant and antifungal activities of extracts of Tabernaemontana alternifolia, Thuja occidantalis and Cajanus cajan were recognized. Total yields, radical scavenging activity
Antioxidant and antifungal activity of some aromatic plant extracts
In this study, the antioxidant and antifungal activities of extracts of sage, rosemary, basil, laurel, pickling herb and summer savory were established. Total yields, radical scavenging activity and
Antioxidant and antimicrobial activity in the seeds of Origanum vulgare L. subsp. gracile (C. Koch) Ietswaart and Origanum acutidens (Hand.-Mazz.) Ietswaart from Turkey
Experimental results showed that the vitamins, flavonoids and fatty acid extracts of both Origanum L. species were effective in the inhibition of the growth of the tested microorganisms at varying levels.
According to the undesirable effects of many chemical preservatives in food products such as oilseed extraction industry, the possibility of substituting these materials with effective compounds of
Phenolic composition and antioxidant activity of aqueous and ethanolic leaf extracts of six Tunisian species of genus Capparis – Capparaceae
The correlation between the data of the phenolic compounds identified and the antioxidant activity revealed a clear between the six taxa studied, and Capparis spinosa var.
Determination of total phenols in some spices in different packaging.
In this study total phenol content of some spices was determined. Determination was performed on nine different samples of spices, such as: rosemary, pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, clove, dill,
Seasonal Variation in Volatile Oil, Polyphenol Content and Antioxidant Activity in Extract of Laurus nobilis Grown in Iran
Analysis of variance showed harvesting time had significant effect on the oil yield, 1,8-cineole and polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of Laurus nobilis.


Antioxidant activity of sage (Salvia officinalis and S fruticosa) and oregano (Origanum onites and O indercedens) extracts related to their phenolic compound content
The antioxidant activities of sage samples were, on average, higher than those of oregano samples, and some samples of sage had a very high antioxidant activity, with induction times more than 10-fold higher than that of lard used as the reference sample.
Comparison of relative antioxidant activities of British medicinal plant species in vitro.
In the longer term further characterisation of the active compounds from plant species with appreciable antioxidant activity identified in the present investigation may prove of value for treatment of disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, in which free radical induced tissue damage has been implicated.
Structure of a New Antioxidative Phenolic Acid from Oregano (Origanum vulgare L.)
Five antioxidative phenolic acids were isolated from the leaves of oregano (Origanum vulgare L.). The structure of a new compound (5a) was determined to be 2-caffeoyloxy-3-[2-(4-hydroxybenzyl)-
Effects of flavonoids on thermal autoxidation of palm oil: Structure-activity relationships
The effects of several flavonoids and other known antioxidants on the thermal autoxidation of refined, bleached and deodorized (RBD)-palm oil were studied. The lipid peroxidation was indexed by
Free-radical scavenging action of medicinal herbs from Ghana: Thonningia sanguinea on experimentally-induced liver injuries.
The hepatoprotective effect of T. sanguinea was studied on acute hepatitis induced in rats by a single dose of galactosamine (GalN) and in mice by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4, 25 microl/kg, IP).
Flavonoids quercetin, myricetin, kaemferol and (+)-catechin as antioxidants in methyl linoleate
The antioxidant effect of the flavonoids quercetin, myricetin, kaemferol, (+)-catechin and rutin on methyl linoleate oxidation was investigated. In addition, the synergistic effects of flavonoids and
