Abstract

An efficient one-pot condensation for the synthesis of 1,8-dioxo-octahydroxanthene is  achieved through a condensation of aryl aldehydes and 5,5-dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexandione in the presence of  NBS. This method enjoys several advantages such as low cost, simple work up procedure and safe reaction condition. In addition, water was chosen as a green solvent.
