Brief Communications


ω, ω-Dibromomethyl-2-furylketone and its 5-nitro derivatives are prepared by brominating the appropriate ketones in CCl4.ω,ω-diiodomethyl-2-furylketone and its 5-nitro derivative are synthesized by the action of iodine on the appropriate diazoketones, and in the case of the 5-nitro derivative along with the diiodoketone is isolated the corresponding glyoxal. 5-Nitro-2-furylglyoxal is also obtained by the action of dimethylsulfoxide on bromomethyl-5-nitro-2-furylketone.
