Veratric acid is a lignin-related aromatic compound and a complex organic polymer derived from plants and algae [39].
Using the AuNPs/GQDs/Si[O.sub.2] composite as a heterogeneous catalyst and hydrogen peroxide as the oxidant, veratryl alcohol could be oxidized to veratraldehyde and veratric acid in a step-wise manner.
The standard solution of each compound (aldehyde benzoic acid, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid, ferulic acid, quercetin, pinobanksin, cinnamic acid, apigenin, veratric acid, and vanillin, among others) was prepared as pure compound (2-6 mg) in MeOH.
