Abstract: By condensation of substituted 5-phenyl-2-furaldehydes with methyl
cyanoacetate in ethanol catalyzed by sodium ethoxide ten substituted
methyl-2-cyano-3-[5-(X-phenyl)-2-furyl]acrylates (where X = 4-N02,
3-NO2, 2-N02, 4-Cl, 3-Cl, 2-Cl, 4-Br, H, 4-CH3 and 4-OCH3) were prepared.
The infrared and ultraviolet spectra of the compounds synthesized and also
starting aldehydes are interpreted in terms of configurational effects.
