Information Profile @ a Glance 

 Gallic Acid

  •  Gallic acid [3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoic acid, C6H2(OH)3COOH] is obtained from nutgalls and other plants or by the hydrolysis of tannic acid with sulfuric acid
  • Gallic acid has two functional groups in the same molecule, hydroxyl
    groups and a carboxylic acid group. They can yield numerous esters and
    salts including digallic acid which is formed by the reaction of two moles
    of gallic acid with one another.
  • Gallic acid and its derivatives are used in making dyes and inks,
    photographic developers and has been used as astringents in medically
  • Some gallates are used as antioxidants in foods.
  • Tannins (tannic acid or gallotannic acid) are esters of digallic acid.
    They are widely used in tanning leather, dyeing fabrics, manufacturing
    inks, and in various medical applications (as astringents and to treat some skin diseases).
  • Technology for production of Vanillin Gallic Acid has been developed.
  • Gallic Acid is a herbicide - disrupts the fungusís ability to produce aflatoxin
  • Polyphenols are antioxidant compounds found in the skin and seeds of grapes.The phenols in red wine include catechin, gallic acid and epicatechin.Polyphenols have been found to have antioxidant properties
  • Research on the antioxidants found in red wine has shown that they may help inhibit the development of certain cancers
