Abstract

A new, concise approach to retinoid synthesis is described based on organometallic addition to pyrylium salts; the use of 4-methylpyrylium tetrafluoroborate giving 13Z-retinal which is readily isomerised to retinal itself; the corresponding unsubstituted and 4-cyclohexyl pyrylium salts are transformed into 13-H and 13-cyclohexyl retinal analogues.
