    • Abstract


      For the synthesis of 5∶6∶8-trihydroxy flavone (6-hydroxy primetin), the two stage ortho-oxidation process is applied to primetin monomethyl ether. A good yield of the 6-aldehyde is obtained, which undergoes oxidation to 5∶6-dihydroxy-8-methoxy flavone. Subsequent demethylation yields 6-hydroxy primetin. Its properties and reactions and derivatives are described.
