Dibromination of 2-acetoxymethyl-4-isopropoxy-5,7-dimethoxynaphthalene (10) in buffered soln. afforded the 3,8-dibromo deriv. (13) (shown as structure I). Similar monobromination of 10 yielded the 8-bromo compd. (15), whereas monobromination in the absence of the buffer yielded the isomeric 1-bromo compd. (16). Conversion of 15 into 16 was effected with HO2CCF3. Selective monodebromination of the dibromo compd. 13 gave rise to a 3rd isomer, the 3-bromo compd. (18).
