Conformational analysis is performed on flavone (2-phenyl-4-H- benzopyran-4-one) and three other related compounds 2-phenyl pyranone, beta- phenyl naphthalene and biphenyl using quantum chemical calculations. For each compound, the rotation of the phenyl group with respect to the rest of the molecule is studied, and conclusions are drawn concerning the relationship of flavone and the other three molecules.
