TOTAL PHENOLIC CONTENT, ANTIOXIDANT CAPACITY AND ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY OF EXTRACTS OF CARTHAMUS TENUIS AND CEPHALARIA JOPPENSIS

Author: Abdullatif Azab
Abstract

Three different extracts (aqueous, ethanolic and ethyl acetate) of Carthamus tenuis and Cephalaria jopprnsis were prepared and tested for total phenolic content (TPC), antioxidant capacity and antifungal activity. Results for C. tenuis are meaningfully different of known findings. As for C. joppensis, the medicinal and biological properties of this plant were never published before. For each plant, TPC was highest in aqueous extracts and these had highest antioxidant capacity. Ethanolic extracts of both plants had strongest activity against Rhizopus stolonifer (black mold).
