The Science of Flavonoids
Edited by Erich Grotewold
Despite the historical signifigance of flavonoids and their pigments in establishing the basis for modern genetics,
research in this large group of secondary metabolites continues to be more intense than ever. While research
has focused in the past primarily on the chemistry and biosynthesis of flavonoids, the past few years have
witnessed increasing research in the applications of flavonoids as nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals as well
as on their roles as signal molecules within plants and between plants and other organisms. No book has tried
provide a comprehensive overview of the flavonoid field since 1990.

This book will comprehensively cover the emerging areas in the field of flavonoid research and their applications.
First, flavonoids are introduced as chemical entities and then an overview of the tools currently available for
their analysis is presented.
