Asymmetric Synthesis of Chiral Flavan-3-Ols.

Summary of "Asymmetric Synthesis of Chiral Flavan-3-Ols."

Flavan-3-ols are a series of natural products widely present in plants and show versatile biological activities. The structures of such compounds are characterized by owing two adjacent chiral centers and three rings. Their interesting structures and promising biological activities have driven increasing research developments toward the preparation of enantioenriched flavan-3-ols. This review summarizes the recent approaches for the asymmetric synthesis of chiral flavan-3-ols from two strategies in the construction of chiral centers. The key steps in the synthetic protocol involve Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation, Shi asymmetric epoxidation and Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Polymers of N-SUBSTITUTED GLYCINES containing chiral centers at the a-position of their side chains. These oligomers lack HYDROGEN BONDING donors, preventing formation of the usual intrachain hydrogen bonds but can form helices driven by the steric influence of chiral side chains.

Dimers and oligomers of flavan-3-ol units (CATECHIN analogs) linked mainly through C4 to C8 bonds to leucoanthocyanidins. They are structurally similar to ANTHOCYANINS but are the result of a different fork in biosynthetic pathways.
