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 ...
