Abstract : The present paper discusses the antioxidant potentials of chitin and chitosan from the marine lobster Panulirus homarus collected from Indian Ocean at the southern part of India. The antioxidant properties were observed through DPPH, Total polyphenolic compound, total antioxidant assay, Reducing power assay and H2O2 assays. The results indicated that Biopolymer chitin and chitosan exhibited highest antioxidant properties. Chitin and chitosan of lobster Panulirus homarus are valuable marine biopolymers showed potent antioxidant effects.
