Application

(3,4-Dimethoxyphenyl)acetonitrile has been used in the synthesis of (Z)-3-(benzo[b]thiophen-2-yl)-2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)acrylonitrile. It has also been used in the preparation of modified diterpene (±) nimbidiol which relies on a sulfenium ion promoted polyene cyclization.

The title compounds, C20H17NO3S, (I), and C19H15NO2S, (II), were prepared by the reaction of benzo[b]thiophene-2-carbaldehyde with (3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)acetonitrile and (3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)acetonitrile, respectively, in the presence of methanolic potassium hydroxide. In (I), the C=C bond linking the benzo[b]thiophene and the 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl units has
