Along with its high fiber content, buckwheat contains the phytonutrient rutin, (3) an oxidant reducer that supports a healthy circulatory system and helps fight high blood pressure.
Figure 7 shows DSC results for synthesized PPy for different oxidants, ferric chloride (Fe[Cl.sub.3]) and ammonium persulphate ([(N[H.sub.4]).sub.2][S.sub.2][O.sub.8]), while Figure 8 shows DSC results for different concentrations of ferric chloride oxidant.
