Photoinduced cycloaddition between ethyl 5-hydroxy-3-methyl-4,7-dioxo-4,7-dihydrobenzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxylate (1a) and alkenes is reported to give ethyl 7-methyl-4,8-dioxo-2,3,4,8-tetrahydrothieno[2,3-f]benzofuran-6-carboxylates (2). Cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate (CAN)-mediated cycloaddition of ethyl 5-hydroxy-4,7-dioxo-4,7-dihydrobenzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxylates (1) to alkenes or phenylacetylene, giving ethyl 4,8-dioxo-4,8-dihydrothieno[2,3-f]benzofuran-6-carboxylate (2 or 4) and ethyl 4,5-dioxo-4,5-dihydrothieno[3,2-g]benzofuran-7-carboxylate derivatives (3 or 5), is also reported.
