Abstract

A method for synthesis of 3-methyl-1,4-epoxy-1,4-dihydronaphthalene-2-carboxylic acid and 3-methyl-1,4-epoxy-1,4-dihydronaphthalene-2-carbonitrile was developed starting from 1,4-epoxy-1,4-dihydronaphthalene; direct photolysis of 3-methyl-1,4-epoxy-1,4-dihydronaphthalene-2-carbonitrile and methyl 3-methyl-1,4-epoxy-1,4-dihydronaphthalene-2-carboxylate in benzene gave indene derivatives.
