A synthesis of chalcones and their thiophene analogs based onβ-chlorovinylketones

  • V. F. Belyaev


A newly developed synthesis [1–3] of chalcones (arylstyryl ketones), based on condensing aryl-β-chlorovinylketones with ethers of mono- and dihydric phenols in the presence of stannic chloride, is extended. A number of chalcones not previously described are obtained in good yield and derivatives prepared. Hitherto undescribed nitroketones are obtained by addition of nitromethane and 2-nitropropane to an activated double bond of the chalcones and a thiophene analog of a chalcone.
