A combinatorial chemistry approach was employed for the design and systematic synthesis of antioxidant-emulsifier bioconjugates to improve antioxidant activity in the interface between oil and water. A combinatorial library of 12 bioconjugates was synthesized from the phenolic antioxidants Trolox (a...

Lipase-catalyzed transesterification reaction of dihydrocaffeic acid (DHCA) with flaxseed oil in organic solvent media was investigated. Using equal molar concentration of DHCA and flaxseed oil, only phenolic monoacylglycerols were obtained with a transesterification yield (TY) of 18.9%. A 1:4 DHCA...

Oligomers and polymers of flavan-3-ols (proanthocyanidins) are very abundant in the Mediterranean diet, but are poorly absorbed. However, when these polyphenols reach the colon, they are metabolised by the intestinal microbiota into various phenolic acids, including phenylpropionic, phenylacetic and benzoic...
