    • Abstract

       

      The constitution of Herbacitrin is established as the 7-glucoside of Herbacetin by methylating the glucoside through the acetyl derivative and isolating 7-hydroxy-3: 5: 8: 4′tetramethoxy flavone from the hydrolysis of the methylated glucoside. Similarly, the constitution of Quercimeritrin is confirmed as the 7-glucoside of Quercetin.
