Detail

The subject of the invention is a method of obtaining a polymeric form of catechin by reaction with a glycerol diglycidyl ether (GDE) crosslinking compound. The produced poly(catechin) is characterized by increased resistance to oxidation and better thermal stability, and also has an antimicrobial effect.Catechin is a natural compound from the group of polyphenols that is found in significant amounts in green tea.
