    • Abstract


      A new biflavanone designated as semecarpuflavanone has been recently isolated from the alcoholic extract of the nut shells ofSemecarpus anacardium Linn. It was dehydrogenated with iodine and potassium acetate in glacial acetic acid to the corresponding, relatively more stable biflavone known as SA4. The structure of semecarpuflavanone has been established through chemical and spectroscopic studies.
