The diffusion coefficients of one flavone and five isoflavones in methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol, and acetonitrile were measured at 25°C by the Taylor-Aris dispersion method. The observed variations of the D values were interpreted in terms of solute-solvent hydrogen-bond interactions and the interpretation was supported by molecular dynamics simulations of two solutes in methanol.
