Namely, compounds which possess the hydroxyl group in position C2 have IHB between hydrogen atom of the hydroxyl group and carbonyl oxygen of the carboxyl group.
This study has compared the bioactivities of 14 different compounds comprising three structural variations of flavonoids which are flavones (absence of hydroxyl group at position 3), flavonol (presence of hydroxyl group at position 3), and flavanol (absence of double bond and ketonic group at positions 2-3 and 4, resp.) (Figure 4).

The researchers synthesized gold nanoparticles whose surfaces were modified with various functional groups: a positively-charged amino group (-NH2), a negatively-charged carboxyl group (-COOH) or a neutral hydroxyl group (-OH).
(1,8-10) In the case of this system, the formed film with high crosslinking density can be obtained due to the reaction between PIH and the active hydrogen (hydroxyl group, amine group, or carboxyl acid) in the polymers.
