Shikimic acid is an industrially important chiral compound used as a key ingredient in formulation of drug Oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu) for the treatment of swine/avian flu. The high cost and limited availability of shikimic acid isolated from plants has detained the use of this valuable building block of the drug. It is a versatile compound having many characteristic properties for many synthetic reactions particularly in pharmaceuticals and cosmetic industries. By virtue of being a natural… Expand
Shikimic Acid:A Highly Prospective Molecule in Pharmaceutical Industry
TLDR
The demand for Tamiflu ® has increased tremendously and the pharmaceutical industry is unable to meet this demand due to shortage of SA, so significant attention needs to be paid towards the development of new technologies for the production of SA from available sources and to find alternative sources.
