(-)-Incrustoporin (1) has been synthesized using aldol condensation of ethyl p-tolyl-acetate (2) and (2R)-benzoyloxy-butanal (3), followed by acid-catalyzed deprotection of the benzoyl group, lactone ring-closure, and elimination of the beta-OH in a one-pot manner. The aldehyde 3 was prepared from...

The Fries rearrangement reaction is an organic name reaction which involves the conversion of phenolic esters into hydroxyaryl ketones on heating in the presence of a catalyst. Suitable catalysts for this reaction are Brønsted or Lewis acids such as HF, AlCl3, BF3, TiCl4, or SnCl4. The Fries rearrangement reaction is an ortho, para-selective reaction, and is used in the preparation of acyl phenols. This organic reaction has been named after German chemist Karl Theophil Fries.
