FeCl3-promoted Tandem 1,4-Conjugate Addition/6-endo-dig Cyclyzation/Oxidation of Propargylamines and Benzoylacetonitriles/Malononitrile: Direct Access to Functionalized 2-Aryl-4H-chromenes

Abstract

An efficient and concise procedure has been developed for the synthesis of functionalized 2-aryl-4H-chromenes based on a tandem reaction of propargylamines and benzoylacetonitriles/malononitrile in the presence of FeCl3 as an environmentally friendly promoter. This reaction involves a highly efficient tandem sequence consisting of the 1,4-conjugate addition, 6-endo-dig cyclyzation, and oxidation. This protocol tolerates a variety of functional groups, thereby providing a practical and efficient method for the fabrication of 2-aryl-4H-chromene skeletons.
