This research is about the use of a catalytic process entailing the regioselective hydroesterification of 2-hydroxystilbenes followed by cyclisation to form the heterocyclic C-ring of the isoflavonoid skeleton. Regioselective influence of the electronic environment around the alkene substrate is limited therefore stilbenes with electron-withdrawing and electrondonating substituents on the two aromatic rings, were synthesised and subjected to palladium catalysed hydro-esterification.
