The bryophytes, which constitute an important part of biodiversity, have a great interest in researches due to their secondary metabolites. The presence of secondary metabolites within the bryophytes is considered to be an indicator of the antioxidant capacity of these plant species. There are limited studies on the antioxidant content of bryophytes in Turkey.  In this context, it is very important to investigate the antioxidant capacity of Pterigynandrum filiforme Hedw. plant species to determine its usability as a natural antioxidant. In the study, extraction of antioxidant compounds in the content of Pterigynandrum filiforme plant was carried out using ethanol solvent. DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazole) radical removal activity, ABTS (2,2′-azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) diammonium salt) radical removal activity and reducing power antioxidant activity tests applied to the obtained extracts. As a result, Pterigynandrum filiforme has been found to be a natural antioxidant source. This situation strengthens the idea that bryophyte species may be an alternative natural antioxidant source for synthetic antioxidants.
