The condensation of 6’,7-dibenzoyloxy-2’,4’- dimethoxyisoflavone with 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol, followed by the hydrolysis of the resultant 3’-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)isoflavone afforded licoricone. Its isomer, 5’-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)isoflavone, was also synthesized from 7-benzoyloxy or 6’,7-dibenzoyloxyisoflavone in a similar manner.
