Author(s): Abderazak Abadi, Fahima Abdellatif*
Abstract: In this study, the antioxidant activity of the oils was assessed by measurement of metal chelating activity, the reductive potential, the free radical scavenging (DPPH) assay. The antioxidant activity was compared with that of synthetic antioxidants: butylated hydroxyanisole (BHT) , and the essential oils . The results showed as the Essential oil of M vulgare was evaluated for its antibacterial activities against Gram-positive and Gram negative pathogenic bacteria: Listeria monocytogene, Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Salmonella enterica.
