The molecular structure of the 6-C-glucopyranosyl-7-O-methylapigenin dihydrate is discussed. The basal plane of the pyranosyl ring of the glucose moiety is found to be perpendicular to the benzopyran ring system. It is observed that the flavone skeletons are stacked along the a axis, forming layers parallel to (001). The glucose groups and water molecules of crystallization are connected via O-H···O hydrogen bonds.
