Abstract: This study demonstrates that morin hydrate behaves as a broad-spectrum antioxidant: it scavenges not only xanthine oxidase/hypoxanthine-generated oxyradicals, but also nonenzymatic, nitrogen-derived radicals, better than those above mentioned antioxidants. This property of morin hydrate may help prevent free radical damage in corneal preservation solutions.
