caffeic acid usage and synthesis
physical and chemical properties caffeic acid, scientific name: "3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-propenoic acid." molecular formula: c9h8o4; the molecular weight: 180.16. it is presented in plants such as coffee in the form of chlorogenic acid. it is yellow crystals with melting point being 223~225 °c. when it is precipitated in concentrated solution, it contains no crystal water. however, precipitate of crystals from dilute solution contains one molecule of crystallized water. it is slightly soluble in water, and easily soluble in hot water, cold ethanol, and ethyl acetate. its alkaline solution is orange and exhibits dark green when being mixed with ferric chloride.
application: caffeic acid is safe to be applied in cosmetics and has a broader antibacterial and antiviral activity. it can also absorb ultraviolet radiation. a low concentration of it already has inhibitory efficacy on the generation of skin melanin. its applied amount in the beauty products for whitening is at the range of 0.5 to 2%. it can also be used as additive for the oxidized hair dyes which is good for enhancing the strength of the color.
preparation: it can be produced from the perkin’s reaction between protocatechuic aldehyde and acetic acid,as follows:
reaction formula
extraction method caffeic acid belongs to common phenolic compounds with effects of increasing the levels of white blood cells. it is easily to be confused with caffeine and is widely distributed in the plant kingdom. its major plant sources include lemon peel, ranunculaceae cimicifuga rhizome, and valerian root. caffeic acid, together with ferulic acid, erucic acid, and p-hydroxy cinnamic acid are ubiquitous hydroxy cinnamic acid-class molecule distributed in various kinds of plants. this kind of products has conjugated double bonds in the side chain of the molecular structure, and thus exhibiting significant fluorescence upon ultraviolet light, mostly showing bluish color fluorescence. this is a advantage for paper chromatography tests or thin layer chromatography tests.
extraction method: single spike cimicifuga rhizome is extracted with methanol which is removed through concentration under reduced pressure. add hot water to the residue to dissolve it. heating the water to dissolve the residue, and further filter the insolubles upon heating. after cooling, add benzene for extraction with the benzene solution being washed with 1% aqueous sodium bicarbonate and further collecting the washed solution. add dilute hydrochloric acid for acidification, and then apply benzene to remove the free organic acid; concentrate under reduced pressure to get rid of the benzene with the residue being the enriched product of caffeic acid.
the above information is edited by the chemicalbook of dai xiongfeng.
drugs for white blood cells increase caffeic acid is a kind of drugs for stopping bleeding as well as increasing the number of white blood cell with effects of contracting microvascular coagulation, improving the function of coagulation factors, and increasing white blood cells and platelets. it is suitable for preventing bleeding or stopping bleeding in surgeries as well as for stopping bleeding for bleeding diseases in internal medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology. it is also suitable for treating leukopenia and thrombocytopenia caused by a variety of reasons.
hplc determination of caffeic acid in dandelion [for the test] compositae dandelion: taraxacum mongolicum hand. mazz, alkali land dandelion t. sinicum kitag.

uses caffeic acid is a constituent of plants, probably occurs in plants only in conjugated forms. caffeic acid is found in all plants because it is a key intermediate in the biosynthesis of lignin, one of the principal sources of biomass. caffeic acid is one of the main natural phenols in argan oi.

general description yellow prisms or plates (from chloroform or ligroin) or pale yellow granules. alkaline solutions turn from yellow to orange.
air & water reactions insoluble in water.
reactivity profile caffeic acid is a carboxylic acid. carboxylic acids donate hydrogen ions if a base is present to accept them. they react in this way with all bases, both organic (for example, the amines) and inorganic. their reactions with bases, called "neutralizations", are accompanied by the evolution of substantial amounts of heat. neutralization between an acid and a base produces water plus a salt. insoluble carboxylic acids react rapidly with aqueous solutions containing a chemical base and dissolve as the neutralization generates a soluble salt. carboxylic acids in aqueous solution and liquid or molten carboxylic acids can react with active metals to form gaseous hydrogen and a metal salt. such reactions occur in principle for solid carboxylic acids as well, but are slow if the solid acid remains dry. even "insoluble" carboxylic acids may absorb enough water from the air and dissolve sufficiently in caffeic acid to corrode or dissolve iron, steel, and aluminum parts and containers. carboxylic acids, like other acids, react with cyanide salts to generate gaseous hydrogen cyanide. the reaction is slower for dry, solid carboxylic acids. insoluble carboxylic acids react with solutions of cyanides to cause the release of gaseous hydrogen cyanide. flammable and/or toxic gases and heat are generated by the reaction of carboxylic acids with diazo compounds, dithiocarbamates, isocyanates, mercaptans, nitrides, and sulfides. carboxylic acids, especially in aqueous solution, also react with sulfites, nitrites, thiosulfates (to give h2s and so3), dithionites (so2), to generate flammable and/or toxic gases and heat. their reaction with carbonates and bicarbonates generates a harmless gas (carbon dioxide) but still heat. like other organic compounds, carboxylic acids can be oxidized by strong oxidizing agents and reduced by strong reducing agents. these reactions generate heat. a wide variety of products is possible. like other acids, carboxylic acids may initiate polymerization reactions; like other acids, they often catalyze (increase the rate of) chemical reactions.
health hazard acute/chronic hazards: when heated to decomposition caffeic acid emits acrid smoke and fumes.
fire hazard flash point data for caffeic acid are not available; however, caffeic acid is probably combustible.
purification methods recrystallise this antioxidant from water. [beilstein 10 iv 1776.]
