Abstract

A number of compounds derived from 3,4-dihydroxy-2,5-di-carbomethoxyfuran have been prepared and studied in order to ascertain some of the properties of beta-hydroxyfurans. The increased reactivity of these compounds in relation to furan itself was best illustrated by the reactions of 3,4-dimethoxyfuran with (1) mercuric chloride and (2) maleic anhydride. This activity can be attributed to the hydroxyl groups or their methyl ethers. The investigation has also made available some information on certain biological effects produced by beta-hydroxyfuran derivatives. The hydroxyl groups have shown all the properties of phenolic hydroxyl groups.
