The regioselectivity of the intramolecular biaryl coupling reaction of 3’,4’-dialkoxyphenyl 2,4-dimethoxybenzoates was investigated using a palladium reagent, and transition state models of the reaction are proposed. As an application of this study, a short-step synthesis of altertenuol is also performed.
