    • Abstract


      Luteolin is present in the form of its glucoside in the yellow variety of the flowers ofChrysanthemum indicum, whereas the red, scarlet red and the deep red variety contains the anthocyanin, chrysanthemin. Just as the simultaneous occurrence of quercetin and cyanidin is frequent, a similar correlation between the corresponding flavone, luteolin and cyanidin may also be common.
