(Chemical Equation Presented) A short synthesis of Kaempferitrin (1), a 3,7-diglycosylflavone, is reported. Key features include the synthesis of a protected form of kaempferol in which all four hydroxy groups are differentiated and the first bis-glycosylation of a dihydroxyflavone. This synthesis will allow the preparation of derivatives for further explorations into the origins of this compound's biological activity.
