Description: The decay of the fluorescence has been measured in 1,4-dioxane for six dimers of (2R,3R)-(-)-epicatechin and (2R,3S)-(+)-catechin, hereafter denoted simply epicatechin and catechin. The dimers are epicatechin-(4β→8)-catechin, epicatechin-(4β→8)-epicatechin, catechin-( 4α→8)-catechin, catechin-(4α→8)-epicatechin, epicatechin-(4β→6)-epicatechin, and epicatechin-(4β→8;2β→O→7)-epicatechin. The monomers and the bridged dimer have a fluorescence that decays as a single exponential. The remaining five dimers have a heterogeneous decay that can be described by the sum of two exponentials. The heterogeneity is most apparent in the two dimers with 4α→8 interflavan bonds. In view of the molecular origin of the heterogeneous decay in the presence of two rotational isomers at the interflavan bond, polymeric procyanidins with predominantly α stereochemistry for the interflavan bond at C(4) should be more disordered and more compact than those with predominantly β stereochemistry.
