    • Abstract


      The synthesis of 5∶7∶2′-trihydroxy and 5∶7∶2′∶4′-tetrahydroxy flavones has been repeated using Allan-Robinson condensation and both hydriodic acid and anhydrous aluminum chloride as demethylating agents. With these reagents and under ordinary conditions isomeric change involving the 2′-hydroxyl group does not occur. The tetrahydroxy flavone has also now been prepared by the procedure of Algaret al. The sample is found to be identical with the one obtained by the method of Robinson and Venkataraman and is different from lotoflavin. The nuclear oxidation of the partial methyl ethers of the two flavones has been carried out using alkaline persulphate.
