A new C-glycosylflavone isolated from corn silk inhibits the growth and development of the corn earworm, Heliothis zea. This new compound was shown to be a 2″-O-α-l-rhamnosyl-6-C-(6-deoxy-xylo-hexos-4-ulosyl)luteolin. Also found co-occurring in corn silk were minor amounts of the corresponding 6-C-glycosylated analogs of chrysoeriol and apigenin. © 1980.
