Abstract:

 Luteolin is a kind of natural flavonoids extracted from plants. It has multiple biological activities such as antioxidant, antiinflammation, anticancer, antipathogen and other physiological effects. Peanut shell is an ideal resource of luteolin with high content of flavonoid. As a renewable resource, peanut shell has wide application prospects in luteolin, if this compound could be extracted and purified efficiently. This paper reviewed physiological properties, bio-activities, biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of luteolin from peanut and other plants for further research of luteolin in peanut and other plants.

Key words: Peanut (Arachis hypogaea), Luteolin, Bio-activities, Bio- and chemical synthesis
