As anyone who works with anthocyanins and other flavonoids is aware, the
nomenclature of these compounds is rife with arcane names and multiple
synonyms.

Extensive chemical terms and synonyms for anthocyanins, flavonols,
chalcones, flavanones, and other flavonoid compounds have now been
entered in MaizeDB.

Google is a handy way to find a term or its synonyms if you have the
exact spelling (try asterin, for example). If uncertain of exact
spelling, try a focused Term query at
http://www.agron.missouri.edu/focused.html with the first part of the
term, or with any part preceded by a wild card (try %quer, for example)
in the Synonym box.

If you find errors or inconsistencies, let me know so we can fix them!
