Dieckmann-type cyclization reactions have been employed in the synthesis of the alkyl substituted naphthoquinone 11 and the naphthalenes 10 and 12. Various conditions for the benzylic oxidation of these compounds have been investigated with a view towards the synthesis of some naphthalene based natural products.
Keywords: Naphthalenes; benzylic oxidation; naphtho-γ-pyrone. Naphthalenes; benzylic oxidation; naphtho-γ-pyrone.
