DescriptionThe bark of blackjack oak contains (+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, (+)-3-O-[β-D-glucopyranosyl]-catechin, catechin-(4α→8}-catechin, epicatechin-(4β→8}-catechin as well as the novel 3-0-[β-D-glucopyranosyl]-catechin-(4α→8)-catechin and 3-0-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-β-D-glucopyranosyl]-catechin, as major components. The latter rutinoside of catechin is especially interesting because of the exceptionally small J2.3 C-ring coupling. The glucoside of catechin-(4α→8)-catechin is only the second proanthacyanidin found in nature in which a 3-0-glycoside is present in the upper 'extender unit' of a dimer.
