(-)-Gallocatechin gallate

CAS : 4233-96-9
Molecular Formula : C22H18O11
Formula Weight : 458.37
Description : 
Gallocatechin gallate (GCG) is the ester of gallocatechin and gallic acid and a type of catechin. Gallocatechin gallate (GCG) is the ester of gallocatechin and gallic acid and a type of catechin. It is an epimer of epigallocatechin gallate(EGCG).In a high temperature environment, an epimerization change is likely to occur, because heating results in the conversion from EGCG to GCG. Thus it is considered inappropriate to infuse green tea or its extracts with overheated water.
