The easily synthesis of dihydrofuronaphthoquinones and C-alkenylated naphthoquinones has been investigated through the radical oxidative cyclization of 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinones and thiophene or furan substituted alkenes catalyzed by manganese(III) acetate. The corresponding heteroaryl substituted dihydrofurans and naphthoquinones have been isolated in good yields.
