Total antioxidant levels using 2,2-Diphenyl-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical by reverse flow injection in mango purees

HERDIN record number :
R07-USC-14012115154023
Author(s) :
Source Document :
Abstract :
A reverse Flow Injection (rFI) system was developed to quantify total antioxidants (TA) in mango purees. The method made use of the reaction of 2,2 - diphenyl - 1 - picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and ascorbic acid (AA) where two molecules of DPPH are reduced by one molecule of AA (Molyneux, 2003). Simplex -d . . .
