Biocatalytic Route to Ascorbic Acid-Modified Polymers for Free-Radical Scavenging

Authors


Abstract

Ascorbic acid functionalized polymers (see Figure) for free radical scavenging have been synthesized via a two step biocatalytic route. The ascorbic acid retained antioxidant activity, and this functional antioxidant on a polymer backbone has implications for consumer-related applications like foods, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products.
