Artemisic Acid from Plants ≥96%
Odor: characteristic
Use: Shows antibacterial activity. Artemisinic acid, isolated as the active principles of the medicinal plant Artemisia annua L., Artemisinic acid is a major precursor of artemisinin (an antimalaric compound), isolated as the active principles of the medicinal plant Artemisia annua L. Although total synthesis of artemisinin is difficult and costly, the semi-synthesis of artemisinin or any derivative from microbially sourced artemisinic acid, its immediate precursor, could be a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, high-quality and reliable source of artemisinin.
