The photo-Fries rearrangement of aryl dihydrocinnamates is compared with that of the analogous cinnamates from a preparative point of view. The former proceeds with higher conversions, giving the corresponding 2’-hydroxydihydrochalcones in acceptable yields. This process, combined with well established reactions, provides an alternative entry to the synthesis of flavonoids.
