Abstract: A convenient microwave irradiation protocol was utilized for the synthesis of b-ketosulfones 15 in good yields. These sulfones reacted with alkenes through a radical oxidative cyclization mediated by Mn(OAc)3. Dihydrofurans 610 were obtained in moderate to good yields starting from 1,1-disubstituted alkenes. Dihydrofurans 1115 were synthesized in moderate yields and unexpected cyclopropanes 1619 were obtained in low yields starting from 1,2-disubstituted alkenes. This protocol offers access to various dihydrofurans which could be tested for their antiparasitic potential.
Keywords: manganese(III) acetate; dihydrofuran; radicals
