Isolisetin dimethyl ether (3) was prepared by oxidative cyclization of the isoflavone derivative (7) derived from 2-hydroxy-4,6-dimethoxyacetophenone and 5-benzyloxy-6-formyl-8-methoxy-2,2-dimethylchroman via three steps. The compound (3) was also obtained by the same reaction of 2’,4’-dihydroxy-5,7,5’-trimethoxy-3’-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)isoflavone (12), followed by cyclization of the resultant compound (13) Lisetin (1) was synthesized by way of piscerythrone (2) and converted into isolisetin dimethyl ether (3) in succession.
