In this work we determined free radical scavenging of the Citrus aurantium peel (orange peel) extract. Naringin was isolated from the fruit peel from Citrus aurantium for using liquid-liquid solvent extraction method; it was characterized by spectroscopic techniques (UV-vis and FT-IR analysis). The scavenging free radical of naringin was evaluated by monitoring radical cation bleaching of ABTS •+ by visible spectroscopy at 734 nm. Assays were compared to reference antioxidants BHT, α-tocopherol

Results showed the extract from the peel of citrus aurantium has antioxidant activity against free radicals, under our experimental conditions, naringin extract had scavenging free radicals of 43.1 % and best reference antioxidant had scavenging free radicals of 50.4 %.
