Abstract

New and known dicoumarols may be efficiently synthesized employing p-toluenesulfonic acid (p-TSA) as a solid acid catalyst from the reaction of 4-hydroxycoumarin with aryl glyoxal in water. This method offers direct access to structurally diverse coumarin derivatives in moderate to good yields (up to 65%). A total of five new compounds were synthesized.

KEYWORDS Dicoumarol, p-toluenesulfonic acid, aryl glyoxal, 4-hydroxycoumarin.
