Abstract

A novel and efficient method for the generation of o-quinone methide intermediates was developed from the readily available 2-tosylalkylphenols under the mild basic conditions, and their reactions with sulfur ylides were investigated for the stereoselective synthesis of trans-2,3-dihydrobenzofurans.
