Table 1 Phenolic content, ferric reducing antioxidant power and DPPH radical scavenging activity of C. sativum extracts

From: Antioxidant activity of Coriandrum sativum and protection against DNA damage and cancer cell migration

Plant extract/positive controls Total phenolic content (mg GAE/g) FRAP value (mmol/g) DPPH radical scavenging activity (μg/ml)
C. sativum (root) Ethyl acetate 31.38 ± 2.75 0.129 ± 0.007 2348.3 ± 184.1
C. sativum (leaf and stem) 24.57 ± 0.70 (Ethyl acetate) 0.136 ± 0.008 (Dichloromethane) 1335.0 ± 37.7 (Aqueous)
Positive control    
Rutin 649.93 ± 13.34 1.789 ± 0.214 42.7 ± 2.3
Quercetin 1275.62 ± 56.03 14.444 ± 0.934 22.2 ± 0.9
  1. Each value is expressed as mean ± SD (n = 3).
  2. IC50 values are presented for the DPPH radical scavenging activity.
  3. All values are significantly different at P < 0.05 compared to the negative control as tested by the Student’s t-test.
