Abstract

In the present review article, the most important procedures developed and utilized for the synthesis of 2,2-dimethyl-2H-chromenes are compiled and discussed. Special emphasis is layed on the most convenient and most important methods, viz. the dehydration of 2,2-dimethyl-4-hydroxychromans or the thermal rearrangement of phenyl propargyl ethers. However, less general and/or special procedures are critically discussed. Examples for the synthesis of nitrogen and sulfur analogues of 2,2-dimethyl-2H-chromenes have also been included.
