The interpretation of the NMR spectra of flavone C-monoglycosides

  • G. A. Drozd


1. A satisfactory explanation of the structures of orientin and homoorientin has been obtained in an evaluation of the results of NMR spectroscopy from the point of the rotation theory of the structure of flavone C-glycosides.

2. On the basis of the investigations performed, orientin has been characterized as luteolin 8-C-syn-β-D-glucopyranoside and homoorientin as luteolin 8-C-anti-β-D-glucopyranoside. Orientin and homoorientin are rotation isomers.
