Application

trans-Ferulic acid was used for esterification of methacrylated dextran. It was also used to study the effect of oral administration of trans-ferulic acid to c57BL mice on ethanol-induced liver injury. Furthermore, it has been used in the synthesis of new biocompatible antioxidant polymers linking trans-ferulic acid.

Biochem/physiol Actions
