Synthesis of 5-methoxy-4,7-dihydroxynaphtho[2,3-c]8,9-furandione (2) and of 4,7-dihydroxynaphtho[2,3-c]8,9-furandione (3) were carried out by a rapid Friedel-Crafts reaction using the dry method. The addition of acetaldehyde on 2 in presence fo LDA gave the (±)-nectriafurone (1), thus cofirming the proposed structure of 3-(1‘-hydroxyethyl)-5-methoxy-4,7-dihydroxynaphtho[2,3-c]8,9-furandione.
