Abstract

A study of the biological, including the antioxidant, activity of various medicinal plants with the aim of searching for the most active sources of biologically active compounds among them is, at present, of interest. In the present work, a comparative analysis of the antioxidant activity of juices from 14 Kalanchoe species, measured by the ammetric, voltammetric, and chemiluminescence methods has been performed. Among the samples examined, two members of the Kalanchoe genus were shown to have the highest antioxidant activity: Kalanchoe scapigera and K. rhombopilosa. They may appear to be richer sources of biologically active compounds compared with the currently used Kalanchoe species.
