Epoxidation of (Z)-3-arylidene-1-thioflavanones by sodium hypochlorite or alkaline hydrogen peroxide afforded diastereomeric mixtures of trans, cis- and trans, trans-epoxides. These were separated by silica gel column chromatography. Determination of the isomeric composition of the crude reaction products and structure elucidation of all new isolated epoxides were performed by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
