The above [sup.1]H-NMR pattern suggests that the compound has flavan skeleton with two aromatic protons (H-6 and 8) on ring A and three aromatic protons (H-2', 5', and 6') on ring B and devoid of the carbonyl group at C-4 of ring C.
The basic flavonoid structure is the flavan nucleus consisting of a 15-carbon skeleton arranged in two phenyl rings bound by a three-carbon bridge commonly encircled by oxygen, then forming three rings (Figure 1) [56].
(136) Rutgers proclaims, "Scientists have developed a proprietary method of extracting and purifying a novel type of piperidine flavan alkaloids from the leaves of Combretum micranthum (kinkeliba) and a procedure for the preparation of total piperidine flavan alkaloids (TPFA) that possess anti-diabetic properties." (137) Paralleling that of the previous two case studies, it does not appear that a specific traditional community, organization, or government within West Africa claimed the use of combretum micranthum as their intellectual property or specifically accused Rutgers of misappropriation.

They are present in the grape seed extracts and are composed of flavan units linked by [C.sub.4]-[C.sub.6] or [C.sub.4]-[C.sub.8] bonds forming dimmers, trimers, tetramers, and polymers up to 15 to 16 units (Prieur et al., 1994) with small amounts of catechin and epicatechin (Ricardo da Silva et al., 1990).

The basic structural feature of flavonoids is the 2-phenylbenzopyrane or flavan nucleus, which consists of two benzene rings linked through a heterocyclic pyran ring (Brown 1980).
