|Title:||Influence of trans-cis isomerisation of coumaric acid substituents on colour variance and stabilisation in anthocyanins|
|Citation:||Phytochemistry 57 (2001) 791–795|
|Abstract:||The recently isolated pigments from Petunia integrifolia and Triteleia bridgesii present a distinct feature that sheds new light on the understanding of intramolecular copigmentation of anthocyanins. These are among the infrequent anthocyanins that naturally present a coumaric acid substituent in both cis and trans forms. As a consequence, the two isomers demonstrate substantial variations of their thermodynamic and kinetic constants and also colour properties. A possible explanation for these characteristics is presented, making use of molecular modelling and taking into account the three-dimensional structures of the pigments.|
