This theoretical contribution provides some important recommendations to evaluate the optical properties of natural polyphenols using regular hybrid DFT functionals.
The electronic transitions of analogs of red wine pyranoanthocyanin pigments.
The present results provide a basis for the design of new pyranoflavylium chromophores with the desired colors and photophysics, as well as for understanding the analogous properties of natural pyranoanthocyanin pigments in red wine.
Stabilizing and Modulating Color by Copigmentation: Insights from Theory and Experiment.
This review revisits this phenomenon to provide a comprehensive description of the nature of binding and of spectral modifications occurring in copigmentation complexes, in which charge transfer plays an important role.
Chemistry and photochemistry of natural plant pigments: the anthocyanins
Anthocyanins are naturally occurring plant pigments responsible for the red, blue, and purple colors of the majority of fruits, flowers, and leaves. The pH-dependent ground-state chemistry of
Tailoring of extraction solvent of Ixora coccinea flower to enhance charge transport properties in dye-sensitized solar cells
We have tailored the extraction solvent of natural anthocyanin pigments from Ixora coccinea flower to lower charge transport resistance and enhance effective electron diffusion coefficient as well as

p-Hydroxyphenyl-pyranoanthocyanins: An Experimental and Theoretical Investigation of Their Acid—Base Properties and Molecular Interactions
Calculations confirmed that the noncovalent dimerization of PAs is stronger with the neutral base than with the cation and also stronger than π–π stacking of P as to chlorogenic acid (copigmentation) and the most stable conformation could be obtained.
Oenin and Quercetin Copigmentation: Highlights From Density Functional Theory
The present study concerning the copigmentation between oenin and quercetin under the framework of implicit solvent indicates that, in these conditions, the intermolecular hydrogen bonds play an important role in the system stabilization.
Quercetin and its analogues: optical and acido-basic properties.
This study focuses on eight structurally analogous natural flavonoids that exhibit a wide range of biological activities, which are of interest in pharmacy, cosmetics and the food industry and relates their fundamental physico-chemical properties to the structural motifs, with particular focus on UV/Vis absorption properties and pH dependence.
Fining of Red Wine Monitored by Multiple Light Scattering.
Overall, multiple light scattering technique showed a great potential for studying fining processes compared to classical univariate approaches.


Physicochemical Studies of New Anthocyano‐Ellagitannin Hybrid Pigments: About the Origin of the Influence of Oak C‐Glycosidic Ellagitannins on Wine Color

Color stabilization of malvidin 3-glucoside: self-aggregation of the flavylium cation and copigmentation with the Z-chalcone form
1H NMR spectroscopy was used to characterize the aggregation processes leading to color stabilization of the natural anthocyanin, malvidin 3-glucoside. The concentrations of the different forms in ...
Formation of pyranoanthocyanins in red wines: a new and diverse class of anthocyanin derivatives
The objective of this paper is to review current knowledge regarding the pathway of formation in red wine of a great variety of pyranoanthocyanin structures, namely carboxypyrano Anthracyanin, methylpyranoAnthracyanins, pyranosinthocyanins-flavanols, pyrsanoanthOCyanin-phenols, portisins, oxovitisins, and pyrANs dimers.
Unusual color change of vinylpyranoanthocyanin-phenolic pigments.
Experimental evidence is presented supporting an unusual color change from red to blue during storage as a function of temperature at constant pH (pH <2), which was explained by a reversible physical-chemical change due to electronic and vibrational properties.
New Family of Bluish Pyranoanthocyanins
Vinylpyranoanthocyanins, a new family of anthocyanin-derived pigments, are found to exhibit a bluish color at acidic pH and bring promising expectations concerning the use of these naturally occurring blue pigments in the food industry.
Structure and properties of wine pigments and tannins
Grape phenolics are structurally diverse, from simple molecules to oligomers and polymers that are usually designated “tannins,” referring to their ability to interact with proteins. Anthocyanin
