Natural Phenolic Compound Curcumin CAS 458-37-7 with Potent
Product Name: Curcumin
Synonyms: Curcumin (mixture of curcumin;TURMERIC
Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by some plants. It is
the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of
the ginger family. It is sold as an herbal supplement, cosmetics
ingredient, food flavoring, and food coloring. As a food additive,
its E number is E100.
It was first isolated in 1815 when Vogel and Pierre Joseph
Pelletier reported the isolation of a "yellow coloring-matter" from
the rhizomes of turmeric and named it curcumin. Although curcumin
has been used historically in Ayurvedic medicine, its potential for
medicinal properties remains unproven and is questionable as a
therapy when used orally.
Chemically, curcumin is a diarylheptanoid, belonging to the group
of curcuminoids, which are natural phenols responsible for
turmeric's yellow color. It is a tautomeric compound existing in
enolic form in organic solvents and as a keto form in water.
