Abstract

Simple syntheses of the benzo-fused 26-membered macrocyclic bischalcone (19E,43E)-2.11.27.36-tetroxaheptacyclo[44.4.0.04,9.012,17.021,26.029,34.037,42]pentaconta-1(46),4(9),5,7,12(17),13,15,19,21,23,25,29,31,33,37,39,41,43,47,49-icosaene-18,45-dione (3) and the benzo-fused 13-membered macrocyclic chalcone (19E)-2.11-dioxatetracyclo[19.4.0.04,9.012,17]pentacosa-1(25),4(9),5,7,12(17),13,15,19,21,23-decaen-18-one (5) using very common starting materials and reagents are described. The compounds are new and they have been characterized from their analytical and spectral data.
