Flavonoids are useful compounds in medicinal chemistry and exhibit conformational isomerism, which is ruled by intramolecular interactions. One of the main intramolecular forces governing the stability of conformations is the hydrogen bond. Hydrogen bond involving fluorine covalently bonded to carbon has been found to be rare, but it appears in 2′‐fluoroflavonol, although the F···HO hydrogen bond cannot be considered the main effect governing the conformational stability of this compound… Expand

Computational evidence for intramolecular hydrogen bonding and nonbonding X···O interactions in 2'-haloflavonols
The conformer stabilities of 2'-haloflavonols were found to be dictated mainly by a C=O···H–O intramolecular hydrogen bond, but an unusual C–F··· H–O hydrogen-bond and intramolescular C–X···O nonbonding interactions are also present in such compounds. Expand
