    • Abstract


      The final constitution of cannabiscitrin has been established. It is a monoglucoside of the flavonol cannabiscetin, carrying the sugar group in the side phenyl nucleus in the 3′-position. This has been arrived at from the following considerations:—It gives the gossypetone reaction and after complete methylation and hydrolysis, it yields a pentamethyl cannabiscetin which on decomposition produces 4∶5-dimethyl gallic acid. The same acid is also obtained by first decomposing cannabiscitrin with alkali, and then subjecting the products to methylation and subsequent hydrolysis. Thus the glucoside belongs to an unusual type and resembles butrin.
