In our screening program for antioxidants with DPPH radical scavenging activity we tested several flavonoids isolated from the leaves of Licania licaniaeflora (Chrysobalanaceae family) and identified by spectroscopic evidence, particularly with 1H and 13C NMR. All the isolated compounds exhibited DPPH radical scavenging activity: quercetin derivatives showed the strongest action, while the flavanone 8-hydroxy-naringenin and kaempferol 3-O-alpha-rhamnoside had the lowest.
