Abstract

A short and high yielding route for thepreparation of the title compound, starting from commercially available1,5-dihydroxynaphthalene, is described. The key step in the sequence is the airoxidation of a bis(trimethylsilyloxy)diene precursor.
Keywords: 1; 5-Dihydroxynaphthalene;bis(trimethylsilyloxy)diene;air oxidation. 1; 5-Dihydroxynaphthalene; bis(trimethylsilyloxy)diene; air oxidation.
