Regioselective substitution of xanthone and its nucleophilic cleavage allow the synthesis of C-3 o-hydroxyaryl substituted 1,2-benzisoxazoles or their N-oxides by cyclodehydration or oxidative cyclization of their corresponding ketoxime precursors, respectively. Molecular modeling analysis and 1H NMR spectra indicate an intramolecular H-bonding engaging phenol OH and the isoxazole ring N atom.
