Chemical Information
FooDB NamePsoralen
DescriptionPsoralen, also known as ficusin or manaderm, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as psoralens. These are organic compounds containing a psoralen moiety, which consists of a furan fused to a chromenone to for 7H-furo[3,2-g]chromen-7-one. Psoralen is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Psoralen is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as figs, parsley, and parsnips and in a lower concentration in fennels, wild carrots, and carrots. Psoralen has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as garland chrysanthemums, daikon radish, pears, guava, and hickory nuts. This could make psoralen a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Psoralen is a potentially toxic compound.
