Abstract

Epidemiological studies indicate that favonoid intake is inversely associated with the risk of coronary heart disease, yet the mechanisms responsible for their bioactivity are still a matter of debate. Based on the rapid and extensive metabolism of most favonoids, their health effects most likely result from the biological activity of their metabolites. However, a lack of commercially available compounds/standards has prevented the study of metabolite bioactivity and resulted in a focus on non-physiologically relevant precursor/parent structures. This paper details the synthesis of a series of phenolic glucuronide 1a-e and sulfate 2a-e derivates as candidate metabolites for use as reference compounds in metabolic profling studies and for the exploration of favonoid bioactivity.
