Eriodictyol is a flavanone well-known for its antioxidative activity. Due to a chiral carbon atom in position C-2, eriodictyol always exist in racemic form. In order to study the a Chiral Amylose-C column as chiral stationary phase. Online coupling HPLC-circular dichroism (CD) method was used for the determination of elution order and the absolute configurations of the two eluates. The protective effects of racemic and enantiomeric eriodictyol against H2O2-induced cytotoxicity with EA.hy926 cells were tested. The results showed that the two enantiomers of eriodictyol and the corresponding racemate were equipotent, suggesting that the configuration of the C-2 chiral center does not influence the cytoprotective activity against H2O2-induced oxidative stress in EA.hy926 cells.
