Abstract:

Two compounds were isolated and purified from the seaweed Sargassam wightii. These compounds were studied for their potential antioxidative activities using DPPH assay, ABTS assay, FRAP assay and reducing potential determination. When the compounds were assessed, the compounds showed increase in the antioxidative activity with an increase in the concentration of the compounds on all the four assays. This study shows that apart from antimicrobial activity, these compounds elicit antioxidative activity too.


Keywords: Sargassam wightii , Antioxidative, DPPH, ABTS.
