Keywords: Spirulina Platensis | Antioxidants | phenols | Indole Acetic Acid | Cholorophyll- a | Growth.

The antioxidants phenolic compounds synthesis in spirulina platennsis was studied in vitro under the influence of the Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) regime. Spirulina platensis is grown in Zarrouks medium supplemented with different concentration of Indole Acetic Acid ( 1μg/ml–10μg/ml ). The gradual increase in the total phenolic content was recorded from 1- 6 μg/ml of IAA. Inhibition in the synthesis of phenolic compounds was noticed from 7μg/ml-10μg/ml the similar trend was also observed with chlorophyll a synthesis .Growth of Spirulina was also inhibited at higher level of IAA .Rapid maximum production of phenolic compounds noticed at 6μg/ml IAA.
