Abstract

Aqueous Diels-Alder conditions were used to effectively and efficiently synthesize some tetrahydroanthraquinones. Similar control reactions carried out in organic environments prove that aqueous media is more advantageous in terms of yield. Both sonication and thermal activation were implemented. Details of solvent and temperature optimization as well as derivatization method of the Diels-Aider adducts are also presented.
