The flavanones, a type of flavonoids, are various aromatic, colorless ketones derived from flavone that often occur in plants as glycosides.[1][2]

List of flavanones[edit]

Metabolism[edit]

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+.

Synthesis[edit]

Numerous methods exist for the enantioselective chemical and biochemical synthesis of flavanones and related compounds.[3]
