    • Abstract


      Starting from chrysophanol and frangula-emodin the corresponding ω-hydroxy compounds, alœ-emodin and citreorosein have been prepared adopting the N-bromosuccinimide method. Partial methylation of frangulaemodin to physcion is effected most conveniently by the methyl sulphatepotassium carbonate method. Physcion can be demethylated directly to frangula-emodin by long boiling with hydrobromic acid.
