Six galloyl-substituted procyanidin B1 and B2, 3-O-gallate, 3''-O-gallate, and 3,3''-di-O-gallate, were systematically synthesized with the condensation method using TMSOTf as a catalyst. Their ability of DPPH radical scavenging activity and DNA polymerase inhibitory activity were also investigated. The results indicated that the galloyl group of these compounds is very important for both activities. 3,3''-Di-O-gallate dimers acted as strong inhibitor against DNA polymerase alpha and beta, whereas the desgalloyl and monogalloyl compounds did not exhibit any appreciable inhibitory activity against the DNA polymerase beta.
