Online Inquiry

Creative Proteomics provides a method based on liquid chromatography mass spectrometer (LC-MS) for the analysis of plant tannins in plants, and provides sufficient robustness, sensitivity and high resolution for the identification and quantification of plant tannins. This high-throughput method consumes less time and can help researchers explore the role of plant tannins in plant development and their applications in industries such as agriculture and food safety.


Cinnamic acid, also known as β-phenylacrylic acid, is an organic acid isolated from cinnamon bark or benzoin. Cinnamic acid is mainly used for the preparation of esters, and can also be used as a plant growth promoter and long-acting fungicide. In plants, phenylalanine is deaminated and degraded to produce phenylacrylic acid. Mainly used in flavors and fragrances, food additives, pharmaceutical industry, daily chemicals, chemical industry, beauty, pesticides, organic synthesis,etc.
