5-Acetoxymethyl- and 5-hydroxymethyl-2-vinylfuran were synthesized by two routes. The first route starts from 2-methylfuran and the second from furfuryl acetate. The latter route, involving successive Vilsmeier-Haack and Wittig reactions, is suitable for producing 5-acetoxymethyl-2-vinylfuran and 5-hydroxymethyl-2 vinylfuran in 68% and...

The use of biologically active substances with anti-inflammatory properties such as corticosteroids has increased considerably in the last few decades. Particularly, the compound we are interested in, prednisolone (Predn), is a glucocorticoid with high biological activity. This compound absorbs UV...
