When treated with Ac2O at rt in the presence of 4-6 mol % FeCl3, 2-alkylcinnamaldehydes are converted to 2-alkyl-1H-inden-1-yl acetates through the intermediacy of gem-diacetates. Methanolysis of the indenyl acetates yields the corresponding indenols. Saponification yields 2-alkylindanones, providing, in effect, an intramolecular acylation employing(More)
