ABSTRACT

The production of melanin complex of Phellinus robustus in submerged conditions was studied. It was estimated that exo- and endomelanins consist of carbon (C), 37.2%−36.9%; nitrogen (N), 5.08%minus;5.30%; and hydrogen (H), 4.9%minus;5.2%. The content of carbonyl groups in exo- and endomelanins was 3.8%minus;1.58%; carboxyl, 0.66%minus;1.28%; total OH, 15.23%minus;15.09%, including aliphatic OH, 13.35%minus;12.5%; and phenolic OH, 1.88%minus;2.58%. Our results demonstrated that melanins from Ph. robustus have high antioxidant and genoprotective properties.
