This symposium, entitled Phenolic Metabolism in Plants, celebrated the origin of this society as the Plant Phenolics Group of North America; the first symposium, entitled Biochemistry of Plant Phenolic Substances, was also held at Fort Collins from August 31 to September 1, Phenolic Metabolism in Plants. Book Overview. Altmetric Badge. Chapter 1 Compartmentation in Aromatic Metabolism Altmetric Badge. Chapter 2 Immunolocalization of Flavonoid Conjugates and Their Enzymes Altmetric Badge. Chapter 3 General Phenylpropanoid Metabolism: Regulation By Environmental and Developmental Signals. Topics covered include nomenclature, chemical properties, biosynthesis, including an up-to-date overview of the genetics controlling phenolic metabolism, isolation and characterization of phenolic compounds, phenolics used in plant defense, and the impact of phenolics on human health. Phenolic compounds (PCs) in plants play an important role in growth control and have antioxidant, structural, attractant, signaling and protective functions. Information on the discovery, study and identifica- tion of phenolic compounds in plants, their role in the complex system of secondary metabolites has been analyzed and summarized.

Phenolic compounds are the derivatives of secondary metabolism of plants. Chemically phenolic compounds consist of aromatic ring to which one or more OH − substituents are attached [ 1, 5 ]. Despite of diversity of phenolic compounds, they are mainly divided into two subgroups, (1) flavonoids and (2) by: 5. This chapter concentrates on the synthesis and metabolism of phenolic compounds, and how the activities of these pathways and the compounds produced affect product quality. Phenolic compounds encompass a diverse group of molecules which include flavonoids, stilbenes, tannins, lignans, and lignin.

Description Recent Advances in Phytochemisty, Volume 8: Metabolism and Regulation of Secondary Plant Products covers papers from the 13th annual meeting of the Phytochemical Society of North America held on August , , at the Asilomar State .

Functional properties of phenolic compounds Phenolic compounds are a main class of secondary metabolites in plants and are divided into phenolic acids and polyphenols. These compounds are found combined with mono‐ and polysaccharides, linked to one or more phenolic group, or can occur as derivatives, such as ester or methyl esters [ 1 ].   Phenolamides are frequently referred to as hydroxycinnamic acid amides (HCAA) or phenylamides. They have been reported throughout the plant kingdom, usually as main phenolic constituents of reproductive organs and seeds. They are regarded either as products of polyamine catabolism or as polyamines or phenolics storage forms.   About this book A collection of current knowledge of phytochemicals and health Interest in phenolic phytochemicals has increased as scientific studies indicate these compounds exhibit potential health benefits.
