Abstract

A highly attractive, convenient and especially sensitive voltammetric approach for the study of antioxidant properties and determination of their activity is suggested in this work, where antioxidants are substances, which interrupt radical-chain oxidation processes in organic and inorganic molecules. The comparative analysis of the activity of well-known antioxidants such as ascorbic and citric acids, glucose, their compound solutions, some food products (green tea extract, apple vinegar) and pharmaceuticals (haemodesum, polyglucinum, Ringer solution) has been carried out. The character of the antioxidant influence on the oxygen electrochemical reduction has been investigated. Finally the use of these substances for prophylactic purposes has been recommended.
