    • Abstract

       

      By Raney nickel hydrogenolysis of the 7-tosyl ester (V), 5:7-dihydroxy-3: 3′:4′-trimethoxyflavone (IV) has been converted into 5-hydroxy-3:3′:4′-trimethoxyflavone (VI). Persulphate oxidation of (VI) gave 5: 8-dihydroxy-3: 3′:4′-trimethoxyflavone (VII), which was demethylated to 3:5:8:3′:4′-pentahydroxyflavone (III) by means of aluminium bromide in benzene. This pentahydroxyflavone was different in its properties from ponderosin, the yellow colouring matter ofPonderosa pine bark.
