Abstract

Fused polynuclear tetrahydro arenes are synthesised in a fast, simple, high yielding and regiospecific procedure by an intramolecular Friedel-Crafts alkylation in dry media under microwave irradiation of the corresponding 1-bromo-4-arylbutanes immobilised on silica. The observed reactivity is rationalised by molecular modelling studies which suggest the occurence of a concerted mechanism.
