Antioxidant compound from the rhizomes of Kaempferia rotunda L



Antioxidant compound from the rhizomes of Kaempferia rotunda L



Pakistan Journal Of Biological Sciences: 20, 2447-2450



This research aimed to investigate the antioxidant effect from rhizomes of <i>K. rotunda</i> for finding the active compounds by DPPH free radical scavenging activity assay. The chloroform-soluble extract of the rhizomes of <i>K. rotunda</i> showed significant scavenging effect on the on 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) free radicals (IC<sub>50</sub>=180 micro g mL<sup>-1</sup>). Two compounds of the chloroform-soluble extract were isolated and identified.
