Also, it can be observed signals for the carbons of the two rings inserted in the xanthone basic structure: signals for three methyl groups: 18.7 and 27.4 ppm for those connected to the pyran ring, and 23.6 ppm for the methyl group attached to the [sp.sup.2] carbon; two methylene groups, at 27.7 and 36.8 ppm; two methyne groups, at approximately 31.0 and 44.4 ppm, and a signal to a tetrasubstituted carbon at 78.5 ppm.
The polyphenolic flavonoids share a basic 15-carbon skeleton core structure (represented as C6-C3-C6) consisting of two phenylbenzene (chromanol) rings linked through a pyran ring.
