Hydroxytyrosol is a natural product of polyphenols, also known as 3, 4-dihydroxyphenyl ethanol, which exists in the structure of secondary metabolites such as olivin in plants.
In olive oil leaves and fruits, there is a high content of hydroxytyrosol, which has strong antioxidant properties and free radical scavenging ability. Hydroxytyrosol is widely used in medicine, food, cosmetics and other fields.
In order to obtain hydroxy butyl alcohol, can be obtained by enzymatic or acid catalyzed hydrolysis, also can be extracted from olive oil waste hydroxyl tyrosol, in addition, there are a variety of synthetic methods can be used, such as chemical method, biological catalysis hydroxy cream cheese ethanol alcohol and benzene can be converted to alcohol, but this method is mainly used in the lab, a small amount of synthetic hydroxy tyrosol, cannot meet the demand of industrialized production.
The preparation method of hydroxytyrosol with low cost, simple process, easy raw materials and suitable for large-scale production needs to be studied in many aspects and verified for many times. It is promoted when the demand is met.
