Recebido em 15/6/11; aceito em 15/9/11; publicado na web em 8/11/11 ANALYSIS OF PASSION FRUIT RINDS (Passiflora edulis): ISOORIENTIN QUANTIFICATION BY HPTLC AND EVALUATION OF ANTIOXIDANT (RADICAL SCAVENGING) CAPACITY. The content of isoorientin in passion fruit rinds (Passiflora edulis fo. flavicarpa O. Degener) was determined by HPTLC (high performance thin layer chromatography) with densitometric analysis. The results revealed a higher amount of isoorientin in healthy rinds of P. edulis

The HPTLC data, allied to assays of radical scavenging activity, suggest the potential of P. edulis rinds as a natural source of flavonoids or as a possible functional food.
