Súhrn: Total phenolic contents and antioxidant capacities of 20 oat genotypes, 13 wheat genotypes, 6 barley genotypes and 2 buckwheat genotypes were studied. Buckwheat genotypes showed the highest contents of phenolic compounds and the highest antioxidant capacity. Contents of phenolic compounds, expressed as gallic acid equivalents per 1 kilogram of cereal dry weight, ranged from 2.456 g.kg-1 to 2.624 g.kg-1 in buckwheat genotypes, from 1.429 g.kg-1 to 1.806 g.kg-1 in barley genotypes, from 0.758 g.kg-1 to 1.244 g.kg-1 in oat genotypes and from 0.459 g.kg-1 to 1.07 g.kg-1 in wheat genotypes. The order of antioxidant capacities was as follows: buckwheat > barley > oat > wheat (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl, DPPH test); buckwheat > barley > wheat > oat (2,2’-azino-di-[3-ethylbenzthiazoline sulphonate], ABTS test); buckwheat > barley > oat - wheat (electron paramagnetic resonance, EPR/spin-trapping test). The particular genotypes of cereals differed in parameters tested (P < 0.05). A good correlation was found between antioxidant capacities and contents of phenolic compounds in wheat genotypes (R = 0.872) and in oat genotypes (R = 0.794), though in barley genotypes there was a weak correlation between the analysed parameters (R = 0.574).
