Standardized Test for determining Anitoxidant Values?

Is there a standardized test, generally recognized as reliable, for
determining the antioxidant potential of a given substance? At least
one post indicated that melatonin was a far more potent
antioxidant than Vitamin E, and I recall reading (many years ago) that
trace levels of bioavailable selenium were _dramatically_ more effective
as an antioxidant than Vitamin E.
There are hundreds of antioxidants used in manufacturing and food
processing. Can anyone point me to a reference that quantifies the
potency of these antioxidants in biological systems, and perhaps
discusses the synergy aspect to boot?
Thanks in advance,
