Vitamin E and Correlated Antioxidants: A γ Radiolysis Study
γ irradiations of Vit.E-Vit.C aerated ethanolic solutions have been per formed for several ratios (Vit.E)/(Vit.C) between 0.1 and 50. The obtained results show that Vit.C is able to regenerate Vit.E from its oxidized radical,this regeneration being total for a ratio (Vit.E)/(Vit.C)> 27 in our conditions of irradiation. The ratio (Vit,E)/(Vit.C) seems to be the main factor of this synergestic effect towards peroxyl radicals scavenging.
