Abstract

A novel use of styrenes as synthetic equivalents of phenylacetylenes is presented. To show its applicability, the method was tested for the preparation of a set of derivatives of boscalid, a commercially important fungicide. The strategy incorporates the Diels–Alder reaction of 3-acylamino-2H-pyran-2-ones with styrenes, followed by an efficient dehydrogenation step. The latter can be achieved either by the use of chloranil as the oxidant (under microwave irradiation) or by the application of activated charcoal Darco KB acting as a dehydrogenation catalyst (conventional heating).
