    • Abstract


      A number of α-methyl-furano-flavones and their dihydro derivatives have been prepared using 7-hydroxy-8-allyl flavone derivatives. Ring closure is effected with anhydrous hydrogen bromide followed by pyridine and dehydrogenation with N-bromosuccinimide. 2-Methyl cromone derivatives have also been made. Tests with fish of select compounds indicate that dihydrofurano compounds are better poisons and an α-methyl group reduces toxicity in the furano compounds.
