Antioxidant Activity Of Ethanolic And Aqueous Extracts Form Some Fruit


This study was conducted on selected fruit such as (Punica granatum L., Ficus carica, Vitis vinifora L., Citrus Limon, Citrus sinensis) to investigate antioxidant activity. The ethanolic and aqueous extracts of the fruits were analyzed for total phenolic content, total flavonoides, antioxidant activities, Reducing power, chelating ions and scavenging hydrogen peroxide. The ethanolic extracts of Punica granatum shown superior there others phenolic compound (83.43 mg/g AGE Equv.), and ficus carioca have a higher flavonides(80.96 mg/g Rutin Equv.) than other extraction, 120mg/g of ethanol and water extracts of Citrus sinensis exhibited 67.12% and 64.51% inhibition of peroxidation in linoleic acid system. Also the ethanolic extract of Citrus show priority in reducing power,chelating of ferrous ion and scavenging of Hydrogen peroxide which were (229.50, 71.38, 85.28%) respectively. Increasing the concentration of the extracts led to increase of antioxidant activity.
