In the present paper QSAR modeling using electrotopological state atom (E-state) parameters has been attempted to determine the antiradical and the antioxidant activities of flavonoids in two model systems reported by Burda et al. (2001). The antiradical property of a methanolic solution of 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and the antioxidant activity of flavonoids in a β-carotenelinoleic acid were the two model systems studied. Different statistical tools used in this communication are stepwise regression analysis, multiple linear regressions with factor analysis as the preprocessing step for variable selection (FA-MLR) and partial least squares analysis (PLS). In both the activities the best equation is obtained from stepwise regression analysis, considering, both equation statistics and predictive ability (antiradical activity: R 2 = 0.927, Q2 = 0.871 and antioxidant activity: R 2 = 0.901, Q2 = 0.841). <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
