About Shikimic acid

Shikimic acid is an important biochemical metabolite in plants and microorganisms. Although shikimic acid is present in most autotrophic organisms, it is a biosynthetic intermediate and in general found in very low concentrations.

In the pharmaceutical industry, shikimic acid from the Chinese star anise (Illicium verum) is used as a base material for production of oseltamivir (Tamiflu).
The low isolation yield of shikimic acid from the Chinese star anise is blamed for the 2005 shortage of oseltamivir.
