Treatment of 2-phenoxybenzaldehydes with copper(II) halides in refluxing nitrobenzene gives an interesting method for 9H-xanthen-9-one 685 syntheses (Scheme 267).[‌1041‌] The postulated mechanism involves thermal decomposition of the copper(II) halide to provide copper(I) halide plus a halide radical that reacts with the aldehyde to form an acyl radical. This acyl radical cyclizes oxidatively to produce the 9H-xanthen-9-one and in the process hydrogen chloride or hydrogen bromide is generated.
