    • Abstract


      Based on the evidences recorded in the past the constitution of tambulin is considered to be 7∶8∶4′-O-trimethyl-herbacetin. A substance of this constitution is synthesised by the partial demethylation of herbacetin-pentamethyl ether and is found to agree very closely with tambulin in properties. Hence its constitution is considered to have now been established.
