4). The NO• solution was prepared by commercial NO gas dissolved in water that was deoxygenated with gaseous nitrogen (Van Acker et al. 1995). The reaction was pseudo-first-order kinetics, as the tested compound was in excess. This pseudo-first-order rate constant was then divided with the concentration of the antioxidant to get the scavenging rate constant. A simple method was developed for the quantification of NO• scavenging capacity of sulfur-containing compounds in aqueous solution using an amperometric NO sensor (Vriesman et al.
