On the other hand, for distilled water sample, thymine caused the highest decrease in pH values (Table 2).
Superoxide radical-scavenging activity (%) = [1 - (As1 - As2) / As0] x 100, where As0 is the absorbance of the control (distilled water instead of sample); As1 is the absorbance of the test sample mixed with reaction solution, and As2 is the absorbance of the sample alone (distilled water instead of superoxide radical generating system solution).
Two control flasks were used, one with distilled water and another one with fully supplemented MRS (commercially available from Oxoid, and described as MRS- Oxoid).
