This study establishes a new method to analyze the radical scavenging activity of antioxidants based on the luminol-H2O2-Co(II)/EDTA chemiluminescence and flow injection analysis. The method is based on the catalytic oxidation of hydrogen peroxide by Co(II)/EDTA complex, forming a free radical flux that can produce a stable chemiluminescence signal which is attenuated in the presence of antioxidants. A properly designed FIA manifold and the appropriate regulation of the chemiluminescence-reagent mixture enabled the establishment of a reaction-sensitive analytical procedure that minimizes oxidant-antioxidant interactions while favors the inhibition effect of antioxidants on the free radicals flux. In that manner, the uncontrolled experimental variability induced by side-reactions occurring antagonistically is reduced. The method was examined in-vitro for the continuous monitoring of the generation of oxygen-derived free radicals and antioxidants, which is closer to in-vivo conditions, with three common antioxidants (ascorbic acid, glutathione and uric acid). All three antioxidants were found to inhibit the luminescent signal with strict logarithmic linear mode, yielding calibration curves rectilinear in the range of 5 x 10(-8)-5 x 10(-5) mol L-1 and detection limits at the 10(-8) mol L-1 levels. The F-statistic was employed to assess the ability of the method to detect differences in the activity of the examined antioxidants. The results suggest that the proposed method can be used efficiently for the detection of free radical activity in real samples. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (EN)
