Synthesis of phenol and naphthol derivatives was performed from furfural derivatives through cycloaddition with an alkyne and benzyne, respectively. Lewis acid-promoted ring opening of the cycloadducts led to the formation of the corresponding phenol and naphthol derivatives. Amide-directed C–H alkenylation and arylation gave functionalized π-conjugated naphthalene derivatives.
