Unexpected Rearrangement in the Reaction of 7Mercapto4methylcoumarin with 1Mono and 1,1Dimethyl Propargyl Alcohols Academic Article uri icon


  • The reaction of 7-mercapto-4-methylcoumarin (4) with 1-mono- and 1,1-dimethyl propargyl alcohols in H3PO4 afforded the corresponding -(7-coumarinthio)ketones with a rearrangement of the carbon chain of propargyl. A possible mechanism of this rearrangement was proposed. Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
