    • Abstract


      In their behaviour towards alkaline hydrogen peroxide 2′-methoxy chalkones behave normally and yield flavonols if the 6-position is free and benzalcoumaranones if this position has a methoxyl group. On the other hand 2′-hydroxy flavanones, and 5-hydroxy flavanones remain unaffected. This result is explicable on the basis that these hydroxy flavanone structures are stable and do not undergo change into the corresponding chalkone structures which alone suffer oxidation.
