Development of Synthetic Flavonoids

Recently, scientists from Agharkar Research Institute (ARI), Pune have found the first synthetic route for producing flavonoids molecules related to the treatment of tuberculosis and chikungunya.

Key takeaways

  • It is for the first time that the flavonoid molecules such as rugosa flavonoids, podocare flavone and isoflavone have been synthesised in a lab.
  • These three molecules have so far been isolated from plants only.
  • These are part of the polyphenol class of phytonutrients (plant chemicals) found in almost all fruits and vegetables.
  • They are responsible for organic pigments and the vivid colours in fruits and vegetables.
  • These are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits.
