The Handbook of Natural Flavonoids (2 Volume Set) by Jeffrey B. Harborne,Herbert Baxter



The handbook set includes a comprehensive collectionof the natural flavonoids, showing the common names ofthe different flavonoids, their chemical structures, CASnumbers, molecular formulae, molecular weight, mainplant source of the various compounds and references tothe first reports of natural occurrence. The work isarranged in two volumes, both of which include a shortintroduction in which the major flavonoid references arementioned together with a brief introduction to the. different flavonoid groups covered in that volume.

Two-Volume Flavonoids Reference Set from . The flavonoids are a very large group of natural products and are derived from flavone, which is found in primula plants. Some flavonoids are intensely colored and provide a wide range of blue and red colors in flowers, fruits and leaves. Others, like the flavonones, are essentially colorless and yet they provide the "whiteness" of white flowers. They exhibit a wide range of biological properties including antimicrobial, insecticidal.

The flavonoids, one of the most numerous and widespread groups of natural constituents, are important to man not only because they contribute to plant colour but also because many members (. coumestrol, phloridzin, rotenone) are physiologically active. Nearly two thousand substances have been described and as a group they are universally distributed among vascular plants. Although the anthocyanins have an undisputed function as plant pigments, the raison d'etre for the more widely distributed colourless flavones and flavonols still remains a mystery. The present volume is divided into three parts. T. J. MABRY Professor.

Jeffrey B. Harborne has expertise in Agricultural Science and Engineering. A survey of the flavonoids of some 92 species of Australian Cyperus, mainly of subtropical or tropical origin, has confirmed a correlation previously reported in this family between flavonoid pattern and plant geography. The pattern found was similar to that of African and South American Cyperaceae, particularly in the occurrence of the rare marker substance, luteolin 5-methyl ether.

Flavonoids are a large and important group of natural products derived from 'flavone'. Some flavonoids are intensely coloured, providing a spectrum of colours from red to blue in flowers, fruit and leaves.

Unparalleled in breadth and depth, the set delineates the physical and chemical properties of nutrients and other food components. It presents an exhaustive compilation of analytical methods and provides step-by-step descriptions of preparation, detection, separation, derivatization, and clean-up techniques. It also assesses the relative advantage, accuracy, and reliability of each procedure.

Flavonoids are a large and important group of natural products derived from 'flavone'. Some flavonoids are intensely coloured, providing a spectrum of colours from red to blue in flowers, fruit and leaves. Other flavonoids are essentially colourless, producing the 'whiteness' of white flowers. Besides their contribution to plant colour, flavonoids have a variety of other roles in the growth and development of plants. Leaf flavonoids provide protection from the potential damage of UVB radiation. Certain flavanones are formed as antifungal barriers in plant leaves in response to microbial infection and others play an important part in plant reproduction. Flavonoids also exhibit a wide range of biological properties including anti-microbial, insecticidal and oestrogenic activities. Edited by one of the world's acknowledged leading researchers in flavonoid chemistry and biochemistry, this book is the essential guide to the chemical structure and function of all known flavonoids and contains full references, CAS numbers, chemical structures, molecular formulae and several extensive indexes. The Handbook of Natural Flavonoids is the definitive reference to this large and important group of natural products for researchers in pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry, plant biochemistry and organic chemistry.
