ANIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDE OBTAINED FROM RED ALGAE CORALLINA OFICINALIS

Sulfated polysaccharides (SP) were extracted from Corallina officinalis marine red algae seaweed by using hydrothermal processes at 100 °C. The antioxidant activity of C. officinalis sulfated polysaccharide was determined using the (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl, DPPH) method, showing that this polysaccharide has a moderate effect in inhibiting the formation of those radicals. This study demonstr...
