Abstract

A protocol has been established for the transformation of chiral ortho 1-hydroxyethyl propenyl benzenes under both anaerobic and oxidative mercury(II) mediated conditions to produce chiral isochromanes. Further transformations of the former products yielded chiral isochromanquinones, while the latter afforded the corresponding chiral 4-hydroxyisochromanquinones.
