The in vitro antioxidant properties of the Al-quercetin/βCD and Al-catechin/βCD inclusion compounds, rationalized in terms of their electrochemical behaviour

Inclusion compounds of Al-quercetin and Al-catechin complexes with β-cyclodextrin (βCD) were investigated. The complex and the inclusion compound of quercetin are more effective DPPH• scavengers than the corresponding catechin compounds and the inclusion does not compromise their scavenging abilities, with only a slight decrease in the EC50 values. This is… CONTINUE READING
