A straightforward and atom-economical base-free palladium-catalyzed regioselective direct arylation of coumarins and chromenones is devised. This protocol is compatible with a wide variety of electron-donating and -withdrawing substituents and allows construction of various biologically important flavone and neoflavone backbones.
A series of polyoxygenated cinnamoylcoumarins was synthesized as conformationally constrained analogs of cytotoxic diarylpentanoids. The title compounds were tested against the viability of human chronic myelogenous leukemia (K562), human acute lymphoblastic leukemia (MOLT-4) and human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cell lines by using MTT(More)
A highly swelling nanoporous hydrogel (NPH) was synthesized via UV-irradiation graft copolymerization of acrylic acid (AA) onto salep backbone and its application as a carrier matrix for colonic delivery of tetracycline hydrochloride (TH) was investigated. Optimized synthesis of the hydrogel was performed by the classic method. The swelling behavior of(More)
A new regioselective α-arylation of coumarins with unactivated simple arenes via a palladium-catalyzed twofold C-H functionalization is devised. This method offers an attractive new approach to synthesis of a wide variety of 3-arylcoumarins from readily accessible starting materials.
A straightforward, regioselective, and step-economical ligand-free palladium-catalyzed decarboxylative functionalization of coumarin-3-carboxylic acids is devised. This protocol is compatible with a wide variety of electron-donating and -withdrawing substituents and allows for construction of various biologically important π-electron extended coumarins.
A highly regioselective and transition-metal free one-pot arylation of chromenones with arylboronic acids has been achieved employing K2S2O8. The procedure consists of a sequence of some reactions including an arylation/decarboxylation cascade and proceeds well in aqueous media to afford biologically interesting flavones and 3-arylcoumarins.

A successive metal-free TBHP-mediated regioselective C-H functionalization of coumarins toward expedient synthesis of 3-aroyl coumarins is unveiled. The ongoing method conducted through the reaction of either coumarins or coumarin-3-carboxylic acids with aromatic aldehydes. The optimized reaction condition also worked well with benzyl alcohols and styrenes(More)
A palladium-catalyzed/norbornene-mediated one-step synthesis of highly functionalized imidazoles via a sequential alkyl-aryl and aryl-heteroaryl bond formation is devised. This method provides an efficient route to a wide variety of substituted imidazo[5,1-a]isoquinolines from readily accessible N-bromoalkyl imidazoles and aryl iodides.
An approach to synthesize 2,3-diaryl benzo[b]furans using coumarins and aryl bromides is developed. This state-of-the-art strategy capitalizes on a palladium-catalyzed one-pot decarbonylative diarylation of coumarins, paving the way to achieve biologically interesting 2,3-diaryl benzo[b]furans.
[reaction: see text] A palladium-catalyzed one-step synthesis of fused aromatic heterocycles from bifunctional bromoenoates or bromoalkyl indoles and iodoarenes is reported. This method provides an efficient route to a wide variety of substituted polycyclic aromatic and heteroaromatic compounds from readily accessible starting materials.
