Xanthone undergoes regioselective substitution and nucleophically - triggered ring opening to the corresponding ketone. Hydrazone of the latter oxidatively rearranges to ortho-diacylarenes, which, then, with hydrazine gives regioselectively substituted phthalazines. Molecular modeling analysis and 1H NMR spectra indicate and intramolecular H-bonding engaging phenol OH and phthalazine N-3 atom.
