Abstract: A newly found reaction for the synthesis of 3,4-disubstituted 1-hydroxy-pyrrolidine-2,5-diones from 3-substituted coumarins and nitromethane has been elaborated. The reaction involved a simple and convenient experimental procedure. The applicability of the rearrangement reaction is determined.
Keywords: pyrrolidine-2,5-dione; pyrrolidine; 3-substituted coumarins; 2-oxo-2Н-1-benzopyrane; Michael addition reaction; rearrangement; Nef reaction
