Cinnamoylation of chroman 1 with acid 4 in presence of fused zinc chloride and phosphorus oxychloride gave chalcone 8 and with acids 5-7, the chalcones 9-11 and dihydrocoumarins 15-17 respectively. A similar reaction of chroman 2 with acids 4 and 5 afforded the chalcones 12 and 13 and dihydrocoumarins 18 and 19 while chroman 3 reacted with acid 4 to yield the chalcone 14 and flavanone 20.
