Indices of reactivity with respect to active oxygen species that resulted from quantum-chemical calculations (PM3 and AM1) have been studied in a series of hydroxyl-and methoxy-derivatives of cinnamic acid. The high antioxidant activity of 4-hydroxy-3,5-di-tert-butylcinnamic acid has been predicted and then experimentally confirmed, which can be of interest for the creation of new drugs.
