In recent years, several researchers are interested in the search for new “antioxidants” based on aromatic and medicinal plants.
The purpose of this paper is to carry out a comparative study of the antioxidant activity of the two fractions of the aqueous extract (diethyl ether and ethyl acetate) of Salvia Officinalis and Pelargonium Graveolens, as well as the dosage of polyphenols and flavonides present in these extract.
It was concluded that the antioxidant activity is mainly related to the phenolic and flavonoids compounds presents in the plant, which explains the high antioxidant activity of Salvia Officinalis extract compared to Pelargonium Graveolens.
