Abstract: Two known C-glycosylflavones, swertisin and embinoidin, were isolated from the leaves of Anthurium aripoense, and characterized by room temperature 1D and 2D NMR experiments. At this temperature, the 1H- and 13C-NMR spectra of these C-glycosylflavones revealed doubling of signals, which suggested the presence of two rotamers in solution. Variable-temperature (VT) 1H-NMR studies supported this hypothesis. The T-ROESY data, in addition to the theoretical (MM2) calculations utilizing the Chem3D Pro software, confirmed the hypothesis that the two rotamers interchange via rotation about the C-glycosidic bond.
