- ... Quercetin, a polyphenolic compound, is widely distributed in plants and has numerous health benefits. However, its hydrophilicity can compromise its use in lipophilic systems. For this reason, quercetin was esterified with 12 different fatty acids as their acyl chlorides with varying chain lengths and degrees of unsaturation. Two monoesters (Q-3′-O-monoester and Q-3-O-monoester) and four diesters ...
