Abstract

In the study, solvent extracts of kamtae (Ecklonia cava) and mao feng tea (Camillia sinensis) were used for obtaining different fractions of organic solvents (diethyl ether, butanol, and ethyl acetate) and the extracted fractions were studied for their antioxidative activities. The total phenolic contents of the mao feng tea ranged from 1.44 to 5.97 mM GAE/g while kamtae ranged from 1.13 to 4.41 mM GAE/g, respectively. Among them, ethyl acetate fraction showed the highest content of phenolic compounds, resulting in Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC) values as 1,554.54 (from mao feng tea) and 1,097.63 mM Trolox E/g (from kamtae). Also, ethyl acetate fractions from mao feng tea showed the highest DPPH (89.27 RSC%), superoxide anion scavenging activity (46.58%), and ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) (242.2 mg GAE/g) while ethyl acetate fractions from kamtae (K-EA) showed the highest DPPH (82.23 RSC%), superoxide anion scavenging activity (28.82%), and FRAP (162.43 mg GAE/g) among the obtained fractions.
