    • Abstract


      The constitution of gossypin as the 8-monoglucoside of gossypetin is confirmed by a detailed study of the pentamethoxy monohydroxy-flavone obtained by the complete methylation and subsequent hydrolysis of the glucoside. It is different from gossypetin-pentamethyl ether containing a free hydroxyl group in the 5-position but both give on oxidation the same quinone which is transformed into a quinol. Further its ethyl ether is shown to have the ethoxyl in the 8-position by unambiguous synthesis.
