Description

General description

Pyrogallol is a phenolic allelochemical, a catechin compound with a defensive mode of action against invading microbes. It is an active component of Emblica officinalis extracts with an anti-proliferative effect on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Pyrogallol is also reported to be algicidal and is known to inhibit the growth of harmful cyanobacteria/algae.

Application

Pyrogallol may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in biological matrices by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and in beverages by flow-injection chemiluminescent method.

Packaging

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.
