Abstract: A tandem demethylation-cyclisation reaction resulting in the formation of pyran rings using AlCl3/EtSH reagent under mild reaction conditions is reported. X-ray diffraction studies on the intermediate support the suggested mechanism.
Keywords: Osthol; pyranocoumarins; demethylation; cyclisation; hard-soft interactions
