    • Abstract


      An attempt has been made to fix the position of the glucose residue in gossypitrin by methylation with diazomethane and hydrolysis of the product. It has been found that methylation is incomplete, one hydroxyl group remaining unaffected, and thereby giving after hydrolysis a tetramethyl-gossypetin. This compound probably has the two hydroxyl groups in the 5 and 7 positions.
