Synthesis method

Shikimic acid is derived fromA monomeric compound extracted from the medicinal star anise.


Shikimic acid affects the metabolism of arachidonic acid, inhibits platelet aggregation, inhibits arterial and venous thrombosis and cerebral thrombosis, and has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It can also be used as an antiviral and anticancer drug intermediate. This product is mostly used as a pharmaceutical intermediate. It has certain irritation and should not be used directly.
