3-Hydroxyflavanones can be quantitatively dehydrogenated by air in pyridine to 2,3-dehydro derivatives. The reaction has been performed on silychristin (1) in order to remove the chirality at the flavanonol ring and to allow the assignment of the stereochemistry of the dihydrobenzofuran ring as 2’R,3’S
