N-Methylpseudoephedrine-mediated dynamic resolution of α-bromoacetates for stereoselective preparation of O-carboxyalkylated flavone has been developed. Substitutions with hydroxyflavone and Cs2CO3 in MeCN and following ethanolysis provided O-carboxyalkylated flavones 3-10 up to 60% overall yield and 98:2 er. In addition, we have described the regioselective alkylations of chrysin to provide 7-O-carboxyalkylated chrysins 11-13 with high enantioselectivities.
