    • Abstract


      Methylation of naringin by means of methyl iodide and potassium carbonate in acetone medium opens out the pyrone ring and methylates all the phenolic hydroxyl groups. The product on hydrolysis yields 2 ∶ 6 ∶ 4′-trimethoxy-4-hydroxychalkone. It is therefore concluded that in naringin the sugars, glucose and rhamnose exist as a disaccharide unit attached to position 7.
