Microwave induced Lewis acid Catalyzed Claisen Rearrangement of O- Allylaryl Ethers

Author(s): Kiran Rao, Reenu Sirohi, Monika Shorey and D. Kishore

Microwave assisted Lewis acid catalyzed Claisen rearrangements of allylaryl ethers (1a–r) were investigated. Lewis acid (ZnCl2 and BF3.OEt2) catalyzed microwave assisted Claisen rearrangement yielded 2-allylphenols (2a–r) from o-allylaryl ethers (1a-r) in excellent yields.
