Nomenclature of Flavonoids

Corresponding Author: Amelia P. Rauter

Flavonoid structures, found in nature or obtained by synthesis, have become more and more complex, and a guide for aglycone names is provided here to permit the construction of the names for their polyglycosylated species with clarity and conciseness.

A joint working party of IUPAC/IUBMB members has prepared these recommendations, which establish rules for the general nomenclature of flavonoids, providing examples of acceptable trivial names, and names derived from trivial names, together with semi-systematic and fully systematic names that follow the published IUPAC recommendations.
