Profiling and Characterization of Polyphenol Polymers from Cinnamon Using an Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer
The study of trimer or even larger compounds using on-line LC/MSn approach has not been reported
Previous studies have indicated that cinnamon may mimic insulin effects and thus may improve glucose uptake.1 2 Considering the complex composition of cinnamon, it is important to be able to isolate and characterize the possible active components in it. A range of reports have been devoted to the studies of this topic.
