oa South African Journal of Chemistry - A facile and practical -toluenesulfonic acid catalyzed route to dicoumarols containing an aroyl group : research article



New and known dicoumarols may be efficiently synthesized employing -toluenesulfonic acid (-TSA) as a solid acid catalyst from the reaction of 4-hydroxycoumarin with aryl glyoxal in water. This method offers direct access to structurally diverse coumarin derivatives in moderate to good yields (up to 65%). A total of five new compounds were synthesized.
