  • 12 A 7 mL microwave vial containing a magnetic stirring bar was flame-dried under vacuum and back-filled with argon after cooling to room temperature. To this vial was added 4 (18.2 mg, 10 μmol), TsOH·H2O (30.4 mg, 0.16 mmol), and anhydrous toluene (3.00 mL). The vial was then sealed and heated in a CEM Discover Microwave, stirring at 150 °C for 60 min. After the reaction mixture was cooled to room temperature, dichloromethane was added and the organic layer was washed with 1 M aq NaOH (× 3). The organic and aqueous layers were then separated prior to washing the organic layer with brine. The cumulative organic layer was dried with sodium sulfate, filtered, and concentrated in vacuo. The resulting residue was subjected to column chromatography (CH2Cl2–hexane, 20:80) to afford 1 (4.9 mg, 38%) as an off-white, slightly yellow solid. 1H NMR (500 MHz, DMSO-d6, 150 °C): δ = 8.13 (1 H), 8.02 (2 H), 7.77 (1 H), 7.71 (3 H), 7.56 (5 H), 7.43 (2 H). MADLI-TOF MS: m/z calcd for C102H70: 1306.55; found: 1306.84.
