Benzodioxinols, compounds with 6-membered heterocycles containing two oxygen atoms, exhibit promising analgesic activity. In the current study, synthesis of dioxinol via two-step approach including Prins cyclization of isopulegol with benzaldehyde to tetrahydropyran and its ring-rearrangement to dioxinol was investigated. Different acidic and basic catalysts were studied in the second step and the highest selectivity toward dioxinol was achieved using mesoporous Ce-composite material.
