    • Abstract


      3-Hydroxy primetin has been synthesised starting with 3∶5-dihydroxy flavone and using partial methylation, para nuclear oxidation and final demethylation. During the last stage no isomeric change is noticed. This is in conformity with the behaviour of similar cases of flavonol derivatives and is different from the behaviour of analogous flavone derivatives. Orthooxidation of 3-hydroxy primetin leading to the synthesis of the lowest member of the gardenin series is found to proceed satisfactorily.
