  1. Flavonoid

    Flavonoids are a class of plant secondary metabolites. Flavonoids were referred to as Vitamin P from the mid-1930s to early 50s, but the term has since fallen out of use. According to the IUPAC nomenclature, they can be classified into: ⁕flavones, derived from 2-phenylchromen-4-one structure. ⁕isoflavonoids, derived from 3-phenylchromen-4-one structure ⁕neoflavonoids, derived from 4-phenylcoumarine structure. The three flavonoid classes above are all ketone-containing compounds, and as such, are flavonoids and flavonols. This class was the first to be termed "bioflavonoids." The terms flavonoid and bioflavonoid have also been more loosely used to describe non-ketone polyhydroxy polyphenol compounds which are more specifically termed flavanoids, flavan-3-ols. The three cycle or heterocycles in the flavonoid backbone are generally called ring A, B and C. Ring A usually shows a phloroglucinol substitution pattern.
