Toward the prediction of the activity of antioxidants: experimental and theoretical study of the gas-phase acidities of flavonoids.


The relative gas-phase acidities were determined for eight flavonoids, applying the kinetic method, by means of electrospray-ion trap mass spectrometry. The experimental acidity order, myricetin > luteolin > quercetin > (+/-)-taxifolin > kaempferol > apigenin > (+)-catechin > (+/-)-naringenin shows good agreement with the order obtained by theoretical… (More)
