Chemical Information
FooDB NameCyclolariciresinol
DescriptionCyclolariciresinol is a member of the class of compounds known as 9,9p-dihydroxyaryltetralin lignans. 9,9p-dihydroxyaryltetralin lignans are lignans with a structure based on the 1-phenyltetralin skeleton carrying a hydroxyl group at the 9- and the 9'- position. Cyclolariciresinol is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Cyclolariciresinol can be found in sesame, which makes cyclolariciresinol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
