Abd Mutalib, Siti Nadhirah (2019) Antioxidant in seeds, pericarp and the whole pod of Moringa oleifera plant / Siti Nadhirah Abd Mutalib. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Moringa oleifera or known as Kelor can be classified as dicot plants, also known as beans plants or vegetables that give good impact towards human being especially in term of health because of the content of the high antioxidant. For that reason, a study has been conducted on Moringa ole[fera plants purchased from the wet market located in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan. The main purpose of this study is to determine the presence of antioxidant properties of Moringu oleifera by using DPPH assay with the use of different concentrations starting with I 000 500, 400, 300,200, and 100µg/ml.The part of the plants chosen such as seeds, pericarp, and the whole pod were used in screening for antioxidant activity. The result for this research found that the highest antioxidant activity between seeds, pericarp and both (seeds and pericarp) is the one contain in the part ofMoringa oleifera' pericarp with 86.86% followed by seeds with the value 83.43% and the lowest reading is both part (seeds and pericarp) with the value 77.78% in the highest concentration being used which is 1000µg/ml.
