  • It is now known, thanks to the researches of Perkin, Schunck, Roemer, Graebe, and Liebermann, that in the manufacture of artificial alizarin there are produced three distinct coloring matters -- alizarin, iso or anthrapurpurin, and flavopurpurin, the two latter being isomers of purpurin.

    Scientific American Supplement, No. 286, June 25, 1881

  • Anthrapurpurin and flavopurpurin are obtained from two isomeric disulphanthraquinonic acids, improperly named isoanthraflavic and anthraflavic acids, which are converted into anthrapurpurin and flavopurpurin by a more profound action of potassa.
