Antioxidant Activity and Total Phenols in Different Extracts of Four Staphylea L. Species
AbstractStaphylea L. is a deciduous ornamental shrub that possesses significant cytotoxic and antibacterial activity, although the chemical composition of its extracts and the identity of the structures responsible for these biological activities are not yet known. In this study we have determined the total phenolic content in chloroform and ethyl acetate extracts of four Staphylea species: Staphylea colchica Stev., S. elegans Zab., S. holocarpa Hemsl. and S. pinnata L.. The antioxidant potential (DPPH radical and peroxynitrite scavenging activity) of these extracts was also determined and a correlation between the phenolic content and antioxidant activities of the ethyl acetate extracts has been found. Ethyl acetate extracts were more active and one of them, obtained from S. colchica Stev., possessed the highest activity.
