A novel biflavonoid named garcinianin was isolated from the roots of Garcinia kola (Guttiferae) and the structure was characterized as a C-3/C-8"-naringenin/kaempferol dimer by spectroscopic methods. Garcinianin is present as a mixture of two atropisomers (relative ratio; 1:1.2) at 25 °C. Garcinianin is the first example of a flavanone-flavonol biflavonoid.
