    • Abstract


      3:7:2′-5′-Tetrahydroxy flavone and 3:5:7:2′:5′-pentahydroxy flavone and their derivatives are prepared and their colour reactions recorded. The flavone with only 2′-hydroxyl free (X) and also its 5′-hydroxyl derivative (XI) do not give any colour with ferric chloride indicating absence of chelation. Alkali colour reactions confirm the original finding that a quinol grouping in the side phenyl nucleus does not produce marked colour effects.
