The flavanones are a type of flavonoids. They are generally glycosylated by a disaccharide at position seven to give flavanone glycosides.
List of flavanones
The enzyme chalcone isomerase uses a chalcone-like compound to produce a flavanone.
Flavanone 4-reductase is an enzyme that uses (2S)-flavan-4-ol and NADP+ to produce (2S)-flavanone, NADPH, and H+.
Numerous methods exist for the enantioselective chemical and biochemical synthesis of flavanones and related compounds.
