    Acetic acid-catalyzed cleavage of proanthocyanidins in the presence of phloroglucinol gives a series of 2R procyanidin- and prodelphinidin-phloroglucinol adducts together with a novel 2S all-cis derivative implicating cleavage of the pyran ring and subsequent inversion of stereochernistry at C-2c. These flavan-4-phloroglucinol adducts also suffer dehydration to products with novel fused dihydrobenzopyr and ihydrobenzofuran rings. In addition, cleavage of the flavan C-10A-C-4c bond followed by dehydration results in unique 3,2'-spirobi[dihydro[l]benzofurans].
