Direct and Short Construction of the ACDE Ring System of DaphenyllineRing ring, ACDE: A direct and short construction of the ACDE ring system of daphenylline has been accomplished from the known 3-(2-bromophenyl)propanal in 10 steps and 17 % overall yield. The synthesis features an iron(III)-catalyzed aza-Cope-Mannich reaction, a self-terminating 6-exo-trig aryl radical-alkene cyclization, and an intramolecular Friedel–Crafts acylation.
