    • Abstract


      A method of complete synthesis of 5∶6∶7∶8-hydroxy flavonols is described. It starts from ω∶3∶6-trimethoxy-2∶4-dihydroxy-acetophenone which is subjected to partial methylation (of the 4-hydroxyl group) and subsequently to persulphate oxidation. The product, 2∶5-dihydroxy-ω∶3∶4∶6-tetramethoxy-acetophenone is condensed with the anhydride and sodium salt of anisic acid and also of benzoic acid. The resulting 6-hydroxy-flavones yield on further methylation the fully methylated ethers of calycopteretin and 6∶8-dihydroxy-galangin and on demethylation, the free hydroxy-flavonols.
