Valuable Bioactive Compounds Extracted from Ceramium rubrum on the Romanian Seaside with Medical Interest
Keywords:Ceramium rubrum, red seaweed, antioxidant, flavonoids, polysaccharides, bioactive compounds.
AbstractRecently in science, seaweeds are widely used because of their relevant compounds and potential origin of antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant activity. Seaweeds are rich in the trace elements and essential minerals that are hard to find in terrestrial plants. Ceramium rubrum is one of the red seaweeds that can be found in the Black Sea on the Romanian coast that has not been enough studied for their bioactive compounds. Identification and quantification of the biomolecules is carried out by specific methods. The compounds that have been found are cumarines, sterols, flavonoic aglicoles, triterpenes and polysaccharides. Is well known that this kind of biomolecules are very important in the pharmaceutical industry. Ozes and poliozes, reducing compounds and catehic tanin we’re also identified from the red algae.
