Based on molecular docking, the best of three coformers were oxalic acid (Ei = -1,6 kcal/mol), benzoic acid (Ei = -2,6 kcal/mol), and ascorbic acid (Ei = -2,1 kcal/mol).
Ephedrine, methyl gallate, catechin, albiflorin, paeoniflorin, benzoic acid, liquiritin, liquiritin apioside, 1,2,3,4,6-pentagalloyl glucose (PGG), cinnamic acid, glycyrrhizin, schisandrin, and 6-shogaol were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Co.
Methods: A tissue equivalent material, ferrous benzoic xylenol orange gel, was prepared using gelatine, ferrous ammonium sulfate, sulfuric acid, xylenol orange tetrasodium salt and benzoic acid. The gel was irradiated using 6MV photons from a Varian Clinac 600C linear accelerator, with a dose of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 gray.
