Aluminium is the most abundant metal and the third most abundant element, after oxygen and silicon, in the earth's
crust. It is widely distributed and constitutes approximately 8 percent of the earth's surface layer. However, Aluminium is a
very reactive element and is never found as the free metal in nature. Ellman’s method was used to check the concentration,
pH, and temperature and time dependent effect of Aluminium- acetyle acetonate on GSH status in aqueous medium.
Aluminium- acetyle acetonate reduced the GSH level with concentration, pH, temperature and time. GSH reduction is due to
oxidation of reduced GSH by Aluminium- acetyl acetonate by changing it to GSSG or by forming GS-Aluminium conjugate.
Present study is in vitro condition which may present the model for in vivo condition.
