2,4-Xylenol is used in antioxidants, stabilizers, intermediate for pressure sensitive inks and photoresists.

Properties Suppliers

2,7-Dihydroxynaphthalene is used in dyes, pigments, fluorescent whiteners, tanning agents, antioxidants, and antiseptics.

Properties Suppliers

2-sec-4-tert-Butylphenol is used as antioxidant intermediate.

Properties Suppliers

3,4-Methylenedioxyphenol is a natural organic compound which is a component of sesame oil. It is a derivative of phenol. It can be produced by organic synthesis from heliotropine, coming from natural resources. It has been found to be an antioxidant that may prevent the spoilage of oils, and may protect the body from damage from free radicals. It also may prevent the spoilage of oils by acting as an antifungal. It is used as a chemical intermediate in the industrial synthesis of the pharmaceutical drug paroxetine.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is an organosulfur compound derived from octanoic acid. It contains two vicinal sulfur atoms (at C6 and C8) attached by a disulfide bond and is thus considered to be oxidized. It is an antioxidant found in certain foods, including red meat, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, yams, carrots, beets, and yeast. It is also made in small amounts in the human body. Alpha Lipoic Acid plays an important role in metabolism or the way that cells process chemicals in the body. Recent research has shown it is helpful in treating nerve damage in diabetics. It may have benefit for other conditions as well. It has been used for years to treat peripheral neuropathy in Germany.It chelates both intracellular and extracellular mercury in the brain and in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) has a half life of 3 hours.

Ascorbic Acid

Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid and its sodium, potassium, and calcium salts are commonly used as antioxidant food additives. In plastic manufacturing, ascorbic acid can be used to assemble molecular chains more quickly and with less waste than traditional synthesis methods. It is a cofactor in tyrosine oxidation. It is easily oxidized and so is used as a reductant in photographic developer solutions and as a preservative. In fluorescence microscopy and related fluorescence-based techniques, ascorbic acid can be used as an antioxidant to increase fluorescent signal and chemically retard dye photobleaching. It is also commonly used to remove dissolved metal stains, such as iron, from fiberglass swimming pool surfaces.
