what is shikimic acid?


Shikimic acid is a white crystalline compound of non-nitrogen acid naturally present in various plants. It has two functional groups in the same molecule, three hydroxyl groups and one carboxylic acid group, which is optically active. They can produce various esters and salts. Shikimic acid is a cyclic alcohol, a polyhydroxylated cycloalkane, containing at least three hydroxyl groups at different positions on the ring. Examples are inositol and quinic acid.


The most important feature of cyclic polyols is the presence of chiral isomers, which are key intermediates in the biosynthesis of aromatic compounds in life metabolism. Shikimic acid is a key intermediate in the biochemical pathway from phosphoenolpyruvate to tyrosine.
