    • Abstract


      A new method of conversion of visnagin into kellin is described. It involves only three steps and gives much better yields. Nor-visnagin is subjected to nuclear oxidation with alkaline persulphate to yield nor-kellin which is conveniently methylated to kellin by means of dimethyl sulphate and potassium carbonate in acetone solution.
