From the aqueous acetone extract of the leaves of Psidium guajava L. the flavanols catechin and gallocatechin, the procyanidins B1, B2, B3 and two prodelphinidins (gallocatechin - (4α→8) - catechin; gallocatechin - (4α→8) - gallo-catechin) were isolated. A more abundant proanthocyanidin polymer was also isolated, purified and its chemical constitution studied by 13C-NMR and phloroglucinol degradation. The mean molecular weight of the polymer was estimated to be about 9 to 10 flavan-3-ol-units with a ratio of procyanidin: prodelphinidin units at 2 : 1 some of which are derivatized by gallic acid.
