An organocatalyzed asymmetric formal [4+2] annulation of ortho-hydroxyl functionalized p-quinone methides with β-keto acylpyrazoles has been developed, which provides an efficient approach to access optically active 3,4-dihydro- coumarins. Under the catalysis of a quinine-derived bifunctional squramide, the reactions of a wide range of ortho-hydroxy- phenyl substituted p-quinone methides and β-keto acylpyrazoles took place smoothly to generate the corresponding polysubstituted 3,4-dihydrocoumarins in good yields with high levels of diastereo- and enantio-selectivities (up to 96% yield, >19/1 dr and 98% ee) under mild reaction conditions.

Key words: asymmetric synthesis, 3,4-dihydrocoumarin, ortho-hydroxyphenyl-substituted para-quinone methide, β-keto acylpyrazole, organocatalysis
