SYNTHESIS OF ALLENIC NAPHTHALENE DERIVATIVES

Ramazan Erenler

Abstract


Propargylic alcohol of naphthalene derivatives were synthesized and converted to the corresponding propargylic acetate using acetic anhydride. Reduction of the propargylic acetates by SmI2 afforded allenes and acetylenes. Base-promoted isomerisation of acetylene formed allene in high yield.
KEY WORDS: Isomerisation, Allenic derivatives of naphthalene
