A photochemical route to 2-substituted benzo[b]furans.


PMID 22774767

Abstract

2-Substituted benzo[b]furans were synthesized by a one-step metal-free photochemical reaction between 2-chlorophenol derivatives and terminal alkynes by tandem formation of an aryl-C and a C-O bond via an aryl cation intermediate. The mild conditions and the application to chlorophenols rather of the more expensive bromo or iodo analogues makes this procedure environmentally convenient.
