A series of 3-(alkyl and aryl)methyleneisoindolin-1-one derivatives were synthesized in a simple two-step procedure using a recently established photodecarboxylative addition of carboxylates to phthalimides as the key-step. Subsequent acid-catalyzed dehydration and deprotection furnished the desired target compounds with high E-selectivity. The reaction sequence was applied to the synthesis of the known bioactive phenylethylene derivative, AKS-186. Different analogues, including heteroatom-containing isosteres were also synthesized using this approach.
