Abstract

α-Allylcyclohexane-1,3-diones undergo one-pot iodine–methanol promoted iodocyclization and oxidative aromatization to afford variously substituted 2-iodomethyltetrahydrobenzofuran-4-ones (minor) and 2-iodomethyl-4-methoxydihydrobenzofuran derivatives (major). On the other hand, the α-allyl-1,3-cyclohexanediones react with pyridinium hydrobromide perbromide in dichloromethane to afford mixtures of 2-bromomethyltetrahydrobenzofuran-4-ones (major) and 3-bromomethyltetrahydrobenzopyran-5-ones (minor). The prepared products and their derivatives were characterized using a combination of NMR, FT-IR and mass spectroscopic techniques.
