Dichloro-4-quinolinol-3-carboxylic acid: synthesis and antioxidant abilities to scavenge radicals and to protect methyl linoleate and DNA.

5,7-, 5,8-, 6,8-, 7,8-dichloro-4-quinolinol-3-carboxylic acid (5,7-, 5,8-, 6,8-, 7,8-DCQA) together with 7-chloro-4-quinolinol-3-carboxylic acid (7-CQA) and 4-quinolinol-3-carboxylic acid (QA) were synthesized to investigate the antioxidant properties. 5,7-DCQA exhibited the highest ability to scavenge 2,2'-azinobis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate… (More)
