Abstract

The effects and mechanism of sesamol on the methylene blue- or chlorophyll-sensitized photo-oxidations of soybean oil have been studied. Sesamol showed strong antiphoto-oxidative activity in both methylene blue-and chlorophyll-sensitized photo-oxidations of soybean oil in a dose-dependent manner. The 1.0 x 10(-3) M sesamol treatments showed 84.7 and 43.4% inhibitions of methylene blue- and chlorophyll-sensitized photo-oxidations of soybean oil in methylene chloride. The antiphoto-oxidative activity of sesamol was comparable to that of delta-tocopherol in both methylene blue- and chlorophyll-sensitized photo-oxidations, at the same molar basis. Sesamol effectively inhibited rubrene oxidation with a chemical source of singlet oxygen in microemulsion, showing its strong singlet oxygen quenching ability. The results suggested that the antiphoto-oxidative activity of sesamol in the photo-oxidation of oil was, at least in part, due to its singlet oxygen scavenging activity. The singlet oxygen quenching rate constant (k(ox-Q) + k(q)) of sesamol was determined to be 1.9 +/- 0.3 x 10(7) M(-1) s(-1). This represents the first report on the antiphoto-oxidative activity of sesamol in the sensitized photo-oxidation of oil, and its bimolecular singlet oxygen quenching ability.
