A direct synthesis of 2,2-disubstituted 3-silylchromenes by [4+2] cycloaddition of in situ generated o-quinonemethides with electron-rich alkynes has been developed. The procedure is applicable for easily available starting materials like various substituted alkynylsilanes and salicylaldehydes. The present reaction provides versatile access to functionalized 2H-chromenes that would be a useful tool for the synthesis of biologically and photochemically active molecules.
