ABSTRACT

The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of type of the solvent (water, aqueous ethanol and ethanol) on the antioxidant properties of four various herbs: couch grass (A. repens), milk thistle (S. marianum), dandelion (T. officinale) and fireweed (E. angustifolium) measurement by three common UV-VIS methods (TPC, ABTS+, DPPH). The results were collected through the Vision-Pro™ UV-VIS spectrophotometer software. Aqueous ethanol was the most effective solvent for extraction for all type of herbs. Fireweed contains the highest amount of polyphenol compounds (0.625 µg GA/ml). The lowest antioxidant capacity was presented by extracts from couch grass (0.019 µg GA/ml).
