Mesquitol is a flavan-3-ol, a type of flavonoid.[1]

Prosopis juliflora, a mesquite found in Kenya, shows unusual amount of (-)-mesquitol from its heartwood.[2]

Mesquitol with its pyrogallol-type A-ring is more susceptible to quinone formation at this ring leading to aryl–aryl bond formation at carbon 5. The structural moieties constitute the proteracacinidin class of proanthocyanidins.[3] Mesquitol-(5→8)-catechin atropisomers can be isolated from Prosopis glandulosa.[4]
