  • V. A. Bandyukova

On catalytic acetylation in the presence of magnesium perchlorate, flavonoids do not react with the catalyst. The highest yield of product was found when using the smallest amount of acetic anhydride (1 · 10−1 mole per 1 · 10−3 mole of quercetin) and 3 · 10−4 mole of Anhydrone.
