Abstract

The reactions of 3-hydroxyflavones with dioxygen in the presence of CuCl and CuCl2 have been studied. 2-Benzoyl-2-hydroxy-3(2H)-benzofuranone (2) was formed along with 2-hydroxybenzil (4), salicylic acid (5), benzoic acid (6), coumaronedione (8) and the depside (11). A copper(II) flavonolate complex has been also isolated.
