Efficient Synthesis of 1-Tetralones from 4-Arylbutyric Acids by Combined Use of Solid Acid Catalysts and Microwave Irradiation
Solid acid catalysts such as H–Beta zeolites effectively promote dehydrative intramolecular cyclization of 4-arylbutyric acids under microwave irradiation to give 1-tetralone derivatives in high yields.
