Euparin (4a) and related benzofurans (4b-e, g) were synthesized by conversion of the corresponding o-(3-hydroxy-3-methylbutynyl)phenyl tosylates (2) in the presence of base into the 2-(1-hydroxy-1-methylethyl)benzofurans (3), followed by dehydration in high yields. 2-(1-Bromo-1-methylethyl)benzofurans (5g, h) were converted into 2,2-diemethylchromenes (6g, h) in good yields.
