Improvement of Pro-Oxidant Capacity of Protocatechuic Acid by Esterification
(Plos One, 2014-10-23) [Artigo]
Pro-oxidant effects of phenolic compounds are usually correlated to the one-electron redox potential of the phenoxyl radicals. Here we demonstrated that, besides their oxidizability, hydrophobicity can also be a decisive ...
Ethyl Ferulate, a Component with Anti-Inflammatory Properties for Emulsion-Based Creams
(Molecules, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
Ethyl ferulate (FAEE) has been widely studied due to its beneficial heath properties and, when incorporated in creams, shows a high sun protection capacity. Here we aimed to compare FAEE and its precursor, ferulic acid ...
