Comparative evaluation of different methods for determining phytochemicals and antioxidant activity in products containing betalains - Verification of beetroot samples
This study presents methods that can be used to assess the health quality of products containing betalains. The paper compares and verifies data on the phytochemical composition of three different pigmented beetroot cultivars using spectrophotometric, HPLC-DAD, HPTLC and LC-Q-Orbitrap-HRMS techniques. Additionally, we compared the total antioxidant activity in both the cell-free and cellular systems. Betalain contribution to antioxidant...
Comparative Study on Assisted Solvent Extraction Techniques for the Extraction of Biologically Active Compounds from Sideritis raeseri and Sideritis scardica
The plants in the Sideritis genus are postulated to exhibit several important medicinal properties due to their unique chemical composition. To isolate the targeted phytochemical compounds, the selection of a suitable extraction method is of primary importance. In this work, a comparative study on the phytochemical profiles of various Sideritis raeseri and Sideritis scardica extracts has been carried out. An untargeted metabolomics...
Efficient optimization approaches for microwave assisted extraction of high-quality antioxidant compounds from Salvia officinalis L.: UHPLC-HRMS differential analysis of phenolic profiles obtained by ultrasound and microwave extraction
The study aims to optimize MAE of total phenolic compounds (TPC) and antioxidant capacity from Salvia officinalis L. leaves using a definitive screening design (DSD) and I-optimal design. UHPLC-HRMS analysis was used to identify and compare the composition of MAE and UAE optimal extracts. The results showed that DSD and I-optimal design were successfully applied for the optimization of MAE targeting phenolics and other antioxidants...
