Abstract

The phenolic methyl ethers of flavan-3-ols, 4/gb-arylflavan-3-ols, and (-)-fisetinidol-(4β,8)-(+)-catechin biflavanoids are susceptible to regio- and stereoselective methoxylation at C-4 in moderate yields with DDQ in CHCl3-MeOH solution. The observed asymmetric induction with exclusive formation of 2,4-trans products is compatible with the intermediacy of a diastereogenic donor-acceptor interaction, DDQ acting as the acceptor and oxidant. The 4-funtionalized analogues are of both synthetic and degradative significance in condensed tannin chemistry. © 1991.
