Hydroxytyrosol, as an important pharmaceutical and chemical raw material, is widely used in medicine, cosmetics, daily chemicals and other fields. It can play an important role in anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-cancer. There are many ways to prepare hydroxytyrosol, which can be obtained by biological, chemical or physical methods.
We can use the residue of olive oil as raw material, catalyzed by enzyme or acid, esterification to get hydroxytyrosol, or reduce 3, 4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid as raw material. Tyrosol or phenylethanol can also be used as a raw material for the preparation of hydroxytyrosol, which can be converted into hydroxytyrosol through biocatalysis or chemical treatment. However, this method is limited by the acquisition and reaction of raw materials and is currently only used in laboratories. In addition, to obtain hydroxytyrosol, catechol and glyoxalic acid as raw materials can be combined to obtain hydroxytyrosol.
There are many ways to prepare hydroxytyrosol, but in the face of mass production, the production process must meet the requirements of green environmental protection, economic safety and other requirements, so as to carry out long-term production and develop more related products.
