Abstract

The chemical composition by nano scale injection and antioxidant activity of the essential oil and the methanolic extract from aerial parts of Cleome iberica have been studied. GC and GC-MS analyses of the essential oil resulted in the identification of 14 compounds, representing 99.97% of the oil. lavandulyl acetate (26.63%), p-cymene (13.73%), geranyl acetate (11.99%) and neryl acetate (9.27%) were the main components, comprising 61.62% of the oil. In vitro antioxidant properties of the essential oil and the methanolic extract were determined by DPPH, beta-carotene-linoleic acid assay methods and compared to those of the synthetic antioxidant BHT. Results of both assay methods indicated that the methanolic extract has superior antioxidant activity to essential oil. Also, total phenolic content of the extract was determined as gallic acid equivalent.
