Studies directed at the stereoselective synthesis of flavonoids through the hydrogenation of prochiral precursors
(University of the Free State, 2008-11)
English: The in vitro studies of biologically active flavonoids are hampered by the inaccessibility of all monomeric units in enantiomerically pure form. Although a number of these scalemic flavonoids can be obtained ...
The structure and synthesis of oligoflavanoids and oligostilbenes from cassia abbreviata
(University of the Free State, 2000-01)
English: During the present study the acetone extract of the heartwood of Cassia abbreviata afforded the known flavan-f-ols, catechin, epicatechin, epiafzelechin, afzelechin and the new (2R,3S) guibourtinidol. This was ...
Structure and synthesis of flavan oligomers from Cassia petersiana
(University of the Free State, 1999-04)
English: The bark of Cassia petersiana afforded the known flavan-f-ols (+)-catechin, (-)- epicatechin, (+)-gallocatechin and epigallocatechin which co-occured with three new procassinidins namely cassiaflavan-( ...
