2-Hydroxychalcones are readily available by condensation of 2-hydroxyacetophenones and aryl aldehydes. Ring closure in the presence of triethyl orthoformate proceeds via a 2-aryl-2,3-dihydro-4H-benzopyran-4-one. It is accompanied by dehydrogenation and leads to 2-aryl-4-ethoxy-1-benzopyrylium salts 31 in 2555% yield (Scheme 36),[‌137‌,‌138‌] while borohydride reduction followed by dehydration, acid treatment, and reoxidation with benzo-1,4-quinone gives 2-aryl-1-benzopyrylium salts unsubstituted at C4.[‌48‌,‌139‌]
