New polyphenolic compounds with xanthylium skeletons formed through reaction between (+)-catechin and glyoxylic acid.


The reaction between (+)-catechin and glyoxylic acid was studied in a model solution system. The major (+)-catechin carboxymethine-linked dimer was isolated and shown to proceed to new polyphenolic compounds exhibiting absorption maxima around 440 and 460 nm. Three yellow pigments were obtained by incubation of the 8-8 colorless isomer. One was the… (More)
