The preparation of 2-(4-oxo-4h-1-benzopyran-2-yl)- 1-phenylethanones by the condensation/cyclization of dilithiated 1-benzoylacetone with lithiated methyl salicylates

Academic Article


  • Dilithiated 1-benzoylacetone was prepared in excess lithium diisopropylamide and condensed with several lithiated methyl salicylates, followed by acid cyclization to 2-(4-oxo-4H-l-benzopyran-2-yl)-l- phenylethanones (2-phenacyl-chromones).
