WHAT DOES POLYPHENOL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Polyphenol

Polyphenols are a structural class of mainly natural, but also synthetic or semisynthetic, organic chemicals characterized by the presence of large multiples of phenol structural units. The number and characteristics of these phenol structures underlie the unique physical, chemical, and biological properties of particular members of the class. Examples include tannic acid, and ellagitannin. The historically important chemical class of tannins is a subset of the polyphenols. The name derives from the ancient Greek word πολύς and the word phenol which refers to a chemical structure formed by attaching to an aromatic benzenoid ring, an hydroxyl group akin to that found in alcohols. The term polyphenol appears to have been in use since 1894.
