Abstract

The Friedel-Crafts reaction, a widely used reaction in both industrial and academic laboratories, produces several byproducts which must be handled as pollutants. An alternative which involves the photochemically-mediated reaction of an aldehyde with a quinone is described. This alternative chemistry can be applied to direct syntheses of the ring systems of the benzodiazepines and benzoxepins.
