Chemical Information
FooDB NameConidendrin
DescriptionConidendrin, also known as alpha-conidendrin, is a member of the class of compounds known as lignan lactones. Lignan lactones are lignans that contain a lactone moiety. They include 1-aryltetralin lactones, dibenzylbutyrolactone lignans, and podophyllotoxins, among others. Conidendrin is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Conidendrin can be found in sesame, which makes conidendrin a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
