Influence of trans-cis isomerisation of coumaric acid substituents on colour variance and stabilisation in anthocyanins.


The recently isolated pigments from Petunia integrifolia and Triteleia bridgesii present a distinct feature that sheds new light on the understanding of intramolecular copigmentation of anthocyanins. These are among the infrequent anthocyanins that naturally present a coumaric acid substituent in both cis and trans forms. As a consequence, the two isomers… (More)
