Phloroglucinol carboxylic acid is a trihydroxybenzoic acid, a type of phenolic acid.
It is produced by
. Pseudomonas fluorescens It is a [1 ] catechin degradation product excreted by the bacterium , a species of bacteria part of the human body normal flora, grown on catechin as sole source of carbon. Acinetobacter calcoaceticus It is also found in wine. [2 ] [3 ]
