    • Abstract


      A satisfactory procedure for the preparation of 2-hydroxy-ω∶3∶6-trimethoxy-4-benzyloxy-acetophenone is described. Oxidation of this to the 2∶5-dihydroxyketone (IV), its condensation with the anhydride and sodium salt of benzoic acid and subsequent demethylation yield 6∶8-dihydroxygalangin. This constitutes a simplified method for the synthesis of 5∶6∶7∶8-hydroxyflavonols and their methyl ethers.
