The 1H-2-benzopyran-5,8-dione structure was synthesized by a cascade reaction through Michael addition, elimination of HBr, and O-alkylation between a dibromobenzoquinone derivative and β-ketoesters under basic conditions. The reaction using potassium carbonate and 18-crown-6 in THF was the best condition, giving 1H-2-benzopyran-5,8-dione derivatives in good yields. The UV-vis absorption spectrum and cyclic voltammogram of the synthesized 1H-2-benzopyran-5,8-dione derivative were measured, clarifying the photophysical and redox properties.
