Usnic acid is a naturally occurring dibenzofuran derivative found in several lichen species with the formula C 18 H 16 O 7. It was first isolated by German scientist W. Knop in [2] and first synthesized between by Curd and Robertson. Although it is generally believed that usnic acid is exclusively restricted to lichens, in a few unconfirmed isolated cases the compound was found in kombucha tea and non-lichenized ascomycetes.

At normal conditions, usnic acid is a bitter, yellow, solid substance.

Usnic acid – Wikipedia

Salts of usnic acid are called usnates e. Usnic acid is a secondary metabolite in lichens whose role has not been completely elucidated. It is believed that usnic acid protects the lichen from adverse effects of sunlight exposure and deters grazing animals with its bitter taste.


Lichen extracts containing usnic acid have been used in medicine, perfumery, cosmetics, and ecology.

Usnic acid possesses a wide range of biological properties. It is a potent antibiotic effective against Gram-positive usnst, including StaphylococcusStreptococcusand Pneumococcusother bacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosisand some pathogenic fungi.

Usnic acid has been included as an ingredient in creams, powders, toothpastes, mouthwash, deodorants, hair shampoos and sunscreen products. In some of these preparations, usnic acid is employed as an active principle, in others as a preservative. Usnic acid and its salt form, sodium usjat, have been marketed in the US as an ingredient in food supplements for use in weight reduction, although this effect is unsupported by scientific evidence.

Usnic acid and its salts are idiosyncratically associated with severe hepatotoxicity and liver failure. Sodium usniate was one ingredient in a product called “Lipokinetix”, that was claimed to induce weight loss via an increase in metabolic rate.

Lipokinetix has been the topic of an FDA warning in the USA, [9] due to potential hepatotoxicity, although it is unclear yet if any toxicity would be attributable to the aforementioned salt. Lipokinetix also contained norephedrine PPAcaffeineyohimbine and 3,5-diiodothyronine.


Usnic acid has been found to have adrenergic activity in both frog and earthworm nerve junction models in preliminary research. It is possible to determine the content of usnic acid in lichen extract using usnxt capillary zone electrophoretic analysis. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
