Murali, D and Rao, Krishna GS (1987) Benzocyclization of 2,4-Hexadienoic Acids. Synthesis of (R)-(-)-Curcuphenol Acetate. In: Synthesis (3). pp. 254-256.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
A simple and general benzocyclization sequence, useful in the conversion of \alpha-methylene ketones/aldehydes 1a-f to phenolic acetates 6a-g via the dienoic acids 5a-g is presented. The technique has provided a new route to the terpenoids, thymol acetate (6f) and (R)-(-)-curcuphenol acetate (6g).
