Description
A 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH•) was successfully solubilised in water by β-cyclodextrin (β-CD). DPPH•/β-CD thus obtained was demonstrated to be a powerful tool to evaluate the antioxidative activity of water-soluble antioxidants, such as ascorbate and Trolox, in aqueous buffer solutions.
