Abstract: Both pyrophosphoryl chloride and phosphorus oxychloride react with aryl aliphatic acids to form mixed anhydrides which undergo intramolecular acylation to afford cyclic ketones without the addition of a Friedel-Crafts catalyst. Aryl and aroylbenzoic acids could be cyclized to the corresponding anthrones and anthraquinones respectively.
Keywords: Pyrophosphoryl chloride; Phosphorus oxychloride; Cyclodehydration; Cyclic ketones; Anthraquinones
