    Comparative Evaluation on Neutralizing Effect of Reactive Oxygen Species of Limonene (Orange Peel Extract) Mixed with Calcium Hydroxide and Chlorhexidine - An In Vitro Study
    Author(s): Keerthana T and Sindhu Ramesh*

    Background: Citrus sinensis is one of the most important and widely known fruits known for its medicinal value. Many medicinal properties of orange peel extract are known to fight viral and bacterial infections. ROS are oxygen-containing, chemically reactive molecules. ROS can kill bacteria but it also destroys the adjacent infected host tissues. The aim of the study was to determine the neutralizing effect of limonene (orange peel extract) on Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) generated by the mixture when used as an intracanal medicament. Methodology: Aqueous and ethanol extracts prepared from peel of Citrus sinensis were screened for neutralizing effect of limonene (orange peel extract) on Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) generated by the mixture when used as an intracanal medicament. The groups were analyzed for ROS formation using the mass spectr.. Read More»
