A scavenger of superoxide anion radical which causes oxygen toxicity was isolated from Capsella bursa-pastoris, and its physicochemical properties were investigated. The scavenger was isolated and purified by solvent fractionation and liquid column chromatographies (Amberlite XAD-2, Sephadex LH-20, Bio gel P-2, ODS (silica gel with 100% octadecyl silanization)). An active compound of 0.25 g was finally isolated by Fast Protein Liquid chromatography (FPLC) from 100 g ethanol extract of Capsella bursa-pastoris. A 50% decrease of superoxide anion radical was obtained with the scavenger compound of 0.58 g. The compound was assumed to be a phenolic glycoside from its physicochemical properties.
