Modification of natural coumarins reaction of khellactone esters with amines

  • Yu. E. Sklyar
  • N. V. Rodionova


The reaction of diesters of khellactone with primary and secondary amines under mild conditions has given derivatives of 4′-aminodihydroseselin. Under more severe conditions, not only the replacement of a 4′-acyloxy group by an amino group but also the opening of the lactone ring with the formation of the corresponding cinnamamide takes place. The ease of hydrolysis of the 3′-acyloxy group and subsequent esterification of the alcohols formed and also the use of various amines makes it possible to obtain very diverse acyloxy and amino derivatives.
