(±)-Naringenin, a polyphenolic material, is used to prepare nickel(II) naringenin-oxime complex, which can be used as a catalyst for Mizoroki−Heck cross-coupling reaction. It has been used as a hypochlorite scavenger to prevent the formation of chloramines from oxidation of hypochlorite in the human serum albumin. It induces apoptosis in human pancreatic cancer SNU-213 cells. It also shows cytotoxic effects on various human cancer cells such as breast, cervix, stomach, colon and liver cancer cells.
