To measure antioxidative activities, the various extracts from RVS (Rhus Verniciflua Stokes) were tried out with either DPPH or thiocyanate method. Also we used the GO (Glucose Oxidase) 20 mU/mL hydroxyl radical system in mouse whole brain cell culture. Chloroform, n-hexane or ethanol were used as extract solutions which had different polarity respectively. In DPPH and thiocyanate method, the antioxidative activities of the crude ethanol extracts were stronger than other extracts. The crude ethanol extracts were fractionated 5 peaks by glass column. Among of them, antioxidative activity of peak II $(P_{II})$ was shown stronger than other fractions, a little for peak III $(P_{III})$ and peak IV $(P_{IV})$, and none for peak I $(P_I)$ and Peak V $(P_V)$. In the antioxidative effects of crude ethanol extracts (30 mg/mL), cell viabilities were evaluated $1\;{\mu}L\;(297\;{\mu}g/mL)$, $2\;{\mu}L\;(588\;{\mu}g/mL)$ of crude ethanol extracts 59%, 68% respectively. $10\;{\mu}L\;(2,727\;{\mu}g/mL)$ addition of crude ethanol extracts had 95% cell viabilities, 0.01% significant, comparing control. In addition, the compounds related to antioxidative effect of crude ethanol extract might be glycoproteins by means of SDS-PAGE. Comparison to antioxidative effects between several antioxidants (ascorbic acid, ${\alpha}-tocopherol$, catalase) $273\;{\mu}L/mL$ addition of crude ethanol extracts corresponds to $1\;{\mu}g/mL$ catalase in antioxidative effects.
