Abstract: The scavenger properties of some flavonoidic vegetal extracts obtained from Crataegus monogyna Jacq have been studied using the chemiluminescence technique and ex vivo lipid peroxidation assay. A correlation between antioxidant activity and phenolic/flavonoidic content was observed for all the seven extracts, and a parallel behaviour with the antioxidant activity determinated by ex vivo lipid peroxidation assay and in vitro chemiluminescence tests was also noted.
