Abstract

Pure organic: The synthesis of tetrasubstituted furans often involves transition-metal catalysis or metal-halogen exchange reactions. A new approach to these heterocycles employs the Feist-Bénary addition-elimination process using nitroallylic acetates and 1,3-dicarbonyls (see scheme; X=C, O).
