The synthesis of 2,2-dialkyl-2H-1-benzopyrans (23), (25), (27), (30), (31) and (29) was performed employing the 1,2-addition reaction of aryllithium salts to cyclocitral, 3-methyl-2-butenal, citral and farnesal respectively. Subsequent deprotection with a Mexican bentonitic earth (Tonsil) in wet acetone was followed by ring closure reaction as the key step. Interesting intermediate products were isolated in the formation of benzopyrans (30) and (31).
