Abstract: Flavonoids and their photochemical transformations play an important role in biological processes in nature. Synthetic photochemistry allows access to molecules that cannot be obtained via more conventional methods. This review covers all published synthetic photochemical transformations of the different classes of flavonoids. It is first comprehensive review on the photochemistry of flavonoids.
Keywords: photochemistry; photoinduction; phototransformation; UV radiation; flavonoids; polyphenols; tannins; chalcones; photooxygenation
