Synthesis and characterization of vanadium (IV)-flavonoid complexes and its antioxidant ability toward superoxide and radical scavenging
MetadataShow full item record
In this project Vanadium complex -Vanadium (IV) - flavone was synthesized using vanadium(IV) acetylacetonate (VO(acac)2) complex and 3-hydroxy-6-methyl flavone ligand. The complex stability was checked using FTIR and UV-vis spectroscopies. Peackes around 990 cm-1 conforms the formation of (V=O) in the complex, as well as (V-O) around 790 cm-1. In UV-Vis spectrum peak around 400-450 nm was noticed, which conforms the formation of the vanadium complex that correspond to the ligand to metal charge transfer (LMCT) transition. The radical scavenging abilities of vanadium complex were investigated using DPPH. The anti-oxidant activity using (BHA) as a standard reference, the complex synthesized displayed strong DPPH antioxidant radical scavenging activity compared to VO(acac)2 and BHA, with IC50 value of (105, 95 and 96) mM respectively. The absorbance in which the reducing power occurred were found to be (0.397, 0.825 and 0.228) for the complex, VO(acac)2 and BHA.
