Synthesis of Multi-substituted 4,5-Dihydrofuran Derivatives from (S)-Limonene and 1,3-Dicarbonyl Compounds and their Biological Activities

Received23 Dec 2008
Accepted20 Feb 2009


Multi-substituted 4,5-dihydrofuran derivatives were regioselectively synthesized by the reaction of α-carbo radical produced from 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds by oxidation with Mn(OAc)3 in Acetic acid and S-(-)-limonene. All the compounds were tested for their antibacterial and antifungal activities by the disc-diffusion technique.
