Flavanones, 2-phenylchroman-4-ones, belong to the family of flavonoids, many of which are produced as secondary metabolites in the plant kingdom and exhibit a broad spectrum of interesting biological activities. Naringenin (5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)chroman-4-one) is one of the most abundant flavanones present in grapefruits and citrus fruits. It is well-known for its beneficial health-related properties, including anti-oxidant, anti-cancer, anti...
Stable isotope signatures reveal cryptic differences in diet of Sociable Weavers
Foraging habits of animals are a critical component of their ecology; however, estimates of feeding that rely solely on observation may not detect all of the factors that affect foraging decisions. Importantly, few studies have examined the influence of sociality on dietary regimes in avian species.
The role of ESR spectroscopy in advancing catalytic science: some recent developments
Paramagnetic species, i.e. those containing unpaired electrons, are involved as reactive intermediates in many of the mechanisms devised for catalytic processes. Since these tend to have an intrinsically fleeting existence, to detect and characterise them is difficult. They may take the form, for example of free radicals, paramagnetic redox sites on catalytic surfaces, or be a part of the essential functional centre of an enzyme.
Healthy, wealthy and wise: the benefits of chemical research
We live in a molecular world, and it is thus to chemists that we turn to solve the problems of life in that world. Chemistry may not enjoy the perceived glamour that fundamental questions in physics such as the origins of the universe, and the structure of the nucleus, seem to attract, nor the immensely expensive pieces of equipment, the giant telescopes or Large Hadron Collider, but chemistry is universal, and of huge importance to humanity.
