Abirami S.*, Bharathi Ravikrishnan, J. Jayanthi, M.G.Ragunathan*

ABSTRACT

Due to the increased consumption of crustacean cuisines, the shell waste also increases. During recent days these shell wastes are used for chitosan extraction, which has variety of biological potentials. The crustacean shell contains pigments which also has biological significance (Chien., 1996). In this current research an attempt has been undertaken to extract the pigment from the crustacean shell wastes, to characterise and explore their biological potentials. The antioxidant property of the extracted pigment was compared to the standard Ascorbic acid by using 2, 2-Diphenyl, 1-Picryl Hydrazyl (DPPH) as the oxygen scavenging radical.

Keywords: Astaxanthin, UV-Spectroscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, Antioxidant assay.
