Abstract

Total phenol contents of O.vulgare were found between 54.23 mg GAE/g (U4) and 124.55 mg GAE/g (U2), respectively. While total phenol contents of O.minutiflorum change between 49.50 mg GAE/g (U5) and 126.92 mg GAE/g (S3), total flavonol contents were found between 623.87 mg RE/g (U5) and 854.53 mg RE/g (U2). Antioxidant capacity ranged from 42.31 mg AAE/g (U5) to 103.04 mg AAE/g (S3). Total phenol contents of O. majorana changed between 51.86 mg GAE/g (S3) and 125,23 mg GAE/g (S2). Antiradical activity and antioxidant capacity values were found between 695.85 IC50= mg/mL (U5) and 1217.51 IC50= mg/mL S3 and 55.43 mg AAE/g (S3) to 110.90 mg AAE/g (U5), respectively.
