Main Applications of 4-Fluorocinnamic acid:
4-Fluorocinnamic Acid is used as a reagent in the synthesis of several organic compounds including enantiometrically pure halophenylalanines form acrylic acids. Also used in the synthesis of trichodermin derivatives which possess antifungal properties. 4-Fluorocinnamic Acid in particular is used as a synthetic building block in flavor and pharmaceutical industries.
P-Hydroxycinnamic Acid, also known as 4-Hydroxycinnamic acid, is a radical scavenging effects of antioxidant, compared with other tyrosinase inhibitor, the hydroxy cinnamic acid and ether hydroxy cinnamic acid and other non-toxic odorless, good permeability, and is considered a good candidate material used as a skin whitening agent.
