Biochem/physiol Actions

Catechins are a plant derived polyphenolic anti-oxidants with phytotoxic properties. Racemic catechin may be used in studies on seed germination and plant invasiveness. Catechin and Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) may be used with other polyphenol flavonoids to study their effects in oxidation and peroxidation-related processes.
