Construction of the dibenzopyran ring of 9-(3-methoxyphenyl)xanthene (2) by an aluminum chloride-catalyzed, geminal dialkylation reaction between 3-methoxybenzal chloride and phenyl ether was accomplished, but in poor yield; however, a satisfactory preparation of 2 was attained by the grignard reaction of 3-methoxyphenylmagnesium iodide with xanthone, and subsequent reduction; demethylation of 2 was effected by treatment with trimethylsilyl iodide in hot quinoline.
