The FolinÀCiocalteu reagent is a mixture of phosphomolybdate and phosphotungstate that contains molybdotungstophosphate heteropolyanion. The molybdenum center in this complex is reduced from Mo(VI) to Mo(V) by an electron donated by an antioxidant, and during this process the light yellow color of the complex changes to an intense blue color with absorption maxima at 765 nm. Gallic acid is often used as the reference standard compound for this assay, and the antioxidant value is expressed as gallic acid equivalent.
