2-Alkenylchroman-4-ones, 2-alkenylthiochroman-4-ones, and 2-alkenylquinol-4-ones were prepared with very good regioselectivity by Me3SiOTf-mediated conjugate addition of alkenylmagnesium bromides and alkenyllithium compounds to chromones thiochromones, and quinol-4-ones. A number of products exhibit a considerable antimicrobial activity. The best activity, with respect to the spectrum of antimicrobial activity, was observed for 2-vinylchroman-4-ones containing an unsubstituted vinyl group and a… CONTINUE READING
