DETERMINATION OF ANTIOXIDANT CAPACITY (ORAC) OF GREIGIA SPHACELATA AND CORRELATION WITH VOLTAMMETRIC METHODS
ABSTRACT The study and determination of the antioxidant capacity of the Greigia Sphacelata fruit were carried out. G. sphacelata is an endemic fruit of central-southern Chile, better known as Chupón or Quiscal. Spectrophotometric and modified ORAC test were developed for antioxidant capacity determinations, and later an electrochemical method was developed by differential impulse voltammetry (DPV) with a vitreous carbon electrode for the quantification of the antioxidant capacity expressed in equivalent of the Trolox standard in µmolL-1. Once the voltammetric test was developed, the correlation study between both methods used to determine the antioxidant capacity of Greigia sphacelata was carried out. The results of the determination of the antioxidant capacity of Greigia sphacelata by ORAC test report an antioxidant capacity of 3525 µmol/100gequivalents of Trolox. Concerning the concentration obtained by the electrochemical methodology, 724 µmol/100g Trolox equivalents is obtained for a linear correlation r = 0.969 with the spectrophotometric method.
