8-(1,1-Dimethylallyl)apigenin has been synthesized in 5 steps from 2’,4’-dibenzylphloroacetophenone and 4-O-methoxyethoxymethylbenzaldehyde. The strategy involved protection of the 4’-hydroxyl in apigenin by a methoxyethoxymethyl group, followed by specific O-prenylation at position 7. Claisen rearrangement of the 7-prenyl-4’-methoxyethoxymethylapigenin performed in one step both the 1,1-dimethylallylation at position 8, and removal of the 4’-methoxyetoxymethyl protecting group.
