      Abstract

      Electron-rich aryl ethers and phenols react with isoprene (2-methylbuta-1,3-diene) in the presence of catalytic Bi(OTf)(3) at 40 degrees C to afford the corresponding prenylated or 2,2-dimethylchroman products, respectively, in moderate to good yields. This transformation offers a convenient and expedient entry to prenylated derivatives of electron-rich aromatics that often display enhanced biological activities. The methodology has been employed in the efficient synthesis of a biologically active natural product and related compounds.
