Abstract: Catechins, which are rich in tea leaves, were found efficient bioactivity in vitro cell cultures and in vivo animal models. Unfortunately, their “ployhydroxy” chemical structures limit the further application. In this paper, some common methods used for molecular modification of catechins were reviewed firstly, and then some practical instances of modified products applied in food, drug and daily cosmetics area were reviewed.

Key words: catechins, molecule modification, application
