Application Notes

Sinapic acid is a common plant metabolite biosynthetically formed by degradation of lignin and lignocellulose. Sinapic acid is a member of the phenylpropanoid class of lignin biosynthetic precursors. The biochemical and pharmacological activity of sinapic acid has > 4,000 SciFinder entries and the area is well reviewed by Guzman (2014) and Sharma (2011). Sinapic acid is a useful standard for analytical and bioassay dereplication as a metabolite commonly encountered in microbial fermentations.
