Title
A new synthesis of benzo[f]isoindole-4,9-diones by radical alkylation and bromomethylation of 1,4-naphthoquinones

Abstract
Two synthetic routes towards substituted benzo[f]isoindole-4,9-diones have been developed. One strategy relies on the synthesis of N-trifluoroacetyl-protected 2-(1-aminoalkyl)-1,4-naphthoquinones starting from 1,4-naphthoquinone and N-trifluoroacetyl-alpha-amino acids by a Kochi-Anderson oxidative decarboxylation method. Furthermore, it was demonstrated that 2-(1-aminoalkyl)-1,4-naphthoquinones are suitable precursors for the synthesis of 1-alkylbenzo[f]isoindole-4,9-diones by bromomethylation and subsequent N-deprotection. Further functionalization by N-alkylation and bromination resulted in completely and asymmetrically substituted benzo[f]isoindole-4,9-diones. The second synthesis is based on a reductive amination of 3-(bromomethyl)-1,4-dimethoxynaphthalene-2-carbaldehyde and subsequent oxidation. ((C) Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
