Studies on curcumin and curcuminoids VIII. Photochemical stability of curcumin

Studien über Curcumin und Curcuminoide. VIII. Photochemische Stabilität des Curcumins

Zusammenfassung

Die photochemische Stabilität von Curcumin wurde untersucht und die Hauptprodukte der Spaltung identifiziert. Die Abbau- und Halbzeit-Reaktionen des Curcumins in verschiedenen Lösungsmitteln und im festen Zustand werden beschrieben.

Summary

The photodecomposition of curcumin when exposed to UV/visible radiation is studied. The main degradation products are identified. The reaction mechanisms are investigated and the order of the over-all degradation reactions and the half-lives of curcumin in different solvents and in the solid state are determined.
