An HPLC analysis was performed on the concentrations of flavonoids in 42 species and cultivars of the Citrus genus and those of two Fortunella and one Poncirus species according to the classification system established by Tanaka. The composition of 8 flavanones and 9 flavone/ols for these species was determined in the albedo, flavedo, segment epidermis and juice vesicle tissues, and those in the fruit and peel tissues were calculated from the composition data of the tissues. A principal… 

Profiling of Flavonoid and Antioxidant Activity of Fruit Tissues from 27 Chinese Local Citrus Cultivars

Overall, mandarin fruits peel contained more TPC and TFC, exhibiting higher antioxidant capacities than other species, and were good natural sources of flavonoids and antioxidants.

Rind contents showed similar tendencies for the majority of compounds although Satsume group presented the highest amounts on the flavanone glycosides hesperidin and narirutin, as well as thehighest amounts of the carotenoid and β-cryptoxanthin, comparing with the remaining varieties studied.

Composition Characteristics of Flavonoids in Citrus Juice

Flavonoids in juice of 67 citrus genetic resources were analyzed using LC-MS/MS, in order to increase utilization of genetic resources as both breeding and functional materials. Analytical condition

Although both mandarin and orange varieties showed similar tendencies concerning the majority of bioactive constituents, the proportion of the individual nutrients ranged among different cultivars and results indicated differences between rootstocks.

Flavonoid composition of Citrus juices.

Analytical techniques for the characterization of juices from different Citrus fruits regarding their flavonoid content (even if present in only trace amounts), concentrating on the most widely used methods (LC-MS and LC-MS-MS).



Flavonoids on Citrus and Related Genera:Part III. Falvonoid Pattern and Citurs Taxonomy

Results indicate that flavonoid patterns in citrus can be classified into eleven groups or more and further they can be summarized in two large groups: (a) Those composed of flavanone rutinosides and (b) those composed of Flavanone neohesperidosides.

Flavonoids in Citrus Hybrids

The occurrence and distribution of flavanone glycosides in the leaves and fruits of many kinds of artificial citrus hybrid plants were investigated by polyamide thin-layer chromatography. The citrus

Quantitation of flavonoid constituents in citrus fruits.

Principal component analysis revealed that the distributions of Citrus species belonging to different classes were largely in accordance with Tanaka's classification system.

HL-60 differentiating activity and flavonoid content of the readily extractable fraction prepared from citrus juices.

Principal component and cluster analyses of the readily extractable flavonoids indicated peculiarities of King and Bergamot.

Orange and Mandarin Peel Oils Differentiation Using Polymethoxylated Flavone Composition

Six Citrus methoxyflavones have been separated and quantitatively determined by normal-phase HPLC using a LiChrosorb Si60 packed column and heptane-isopropyl alcohol eluent system. The response

Effect of extraction method on the concentrations of selected bioactive compounds in mandarin juice.

The inhibitory effect of hand-press juice extract on platelet cyclooxygenase activity was remarkable among juice extracts, and all juice extracts effectively inhibited polymorphonuclear 5-lipoxygen enzyme activity at nearly the same rate.
