ESTIMATION OF TOTAL ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY
Total antioxidant activity is measured by ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP)assay of Benzie and Strain (1999). FRAP assay uses antioxidants as reductants in aredox-linked colorimetric method, employing an easily reduced oxidant system presentin stoichiometric excess.
Principle
At low pH, reduction of ferric tripyridyl triazine (Fe III TPTZ) complex to ferrous form(which has an intense blue colour) can be monitored by measuring the change inabsorption at 593nm. The reaction is non specific, in that any half reaction that haslower redox potential, under reaction conditions, than that of ferric ferrous half reaction,will drive the ferrous (Fe III to Fe II) ion formation. The change in absorbance istherefore, directly related to the combined or “total” reducing power of the electrondonating antioxidants present in the reaction mixture.

well done for making this available. however there is the need to check something! is it FeSO4.7H2O or FeSO4.6H2O
