    • Abstract


      The synthesis of some flavonols with only one hydroxy group in the 5-position of the benzo-pyrone part has been effected starting from the monomethyl ether of 2-acetyl resorcinol and adopting the chalkone method of Kostanecki. The mono-methyl ether of 2-acetyl resorcinol is condensed with benzaldehyde, anisaldehyde and veratric aldehyde and the resulting chalkones converted into flavanones and flavonols. Thus 3∶5-dihydroxy-, 3∶5∶4′-trihydroxy-, and 3∶5∶3′∶4′-tetrahydroxy flavones, their methyl ethers and acetates have been prepared and their properties studied. These flavonols differ markedly from the isomeric compounds containing only one hydroxyl group in the 7-position of the benzopyrone part.
