Abstract: 5-Acetoxymethyl- and 5-hydroxymethyl-2-vinylfuran were synthesized by two routes. The first route starts from 2-methylfuran and the second from furfuryl acetate. The latter route, involving successive Vilsmeier-Haack and Wittig reactions, is suitable for producing 5-acetoxymethyl-2-vinylfuran and 5-hydroxymethyl-2 vinylfuran in 68% and 60%yields, respectively.
Keywords: Vilsmeier-Haack reaction; Wittig reaction; 5-acetylfurfuryl alcohol; 5-hydroxymethyl-2-vinylfuran
