Title : Effect of different water conditions on phenolic compounds and tocopherols in mung beans


The main object of the present study was to evaluate the influence of irrigation periods on the distribution of phenolic compounds (flavonoids and phenolic acids) and tocopherols (α-, β-, γ- and δ-tocopherol) in mung bean cultivars. Each mung bean seed was treated with one of three different irrigation treatments that represented different lengths of time between irrigation events (100 mL/3 days, 100 mL/6 days and 100 mL/ 9 days) from the July 2, 2017 to the August 30, 2017. The average total phenolic compounds contents of different irrigation events (100 mL/3 days, 100 mL/6 days and 100 mL/ 9 days) were shown 2912.0 µg•g-1 (100 mL/3 days), 3321.8 µg•g-1 (100 mL/6 days) and 3002.0 µg•g-1 (100 mL/ 9 days). The tocopherols in mung bean seeds were analyzed by GC instruments. The average total tocopherol compounds of 3 different days and 100 mL/ 9 days) were shown 112.1 µg•g-1 (100 mL/3 days), 85.1 µg•g-1 (100 mL/6 days) and 93.0 µg•g-1 (100 mL/ 9 days). Among 3 different irrigation events, 100 mL/3 days water controls showed the highest levels of total tocopherols concentrations.


My major is the crop science of agriculture. The secondary metabolites (phenolic compounds, tocopherols, fatty acids, etc) of legumes is my main research parts. These findings are published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, and many other papers published various international journals.
