Novel Furan-ring Fused Chalcones (FFC) were synthesized using a radical cyclization reaction of α,β-unsaturated ketones with cyclic ketone as the model reaction to attain this goal. In this study, traditional and microwave-assisted methods for the efficient and cost-effective synthesis of furan-ring fused chalcones in mild reaction conditions are compared and optimized. The goal is to develop a reliable and adaptable synthetic technique that may be used to produce these useful chalcone derivatives quickly and effectively. The optimal experimental conditions for these reactions were carefully determined using two independent methodologies: conventional (Method A) and microwave (Method B). The results indicated that the proposed method B could be used effectively in the future to synthesize novel furans with short reaction times and acceptable yields (87-94 %), and products were purified by column chromatography and preparative thin layer chromatography (PTLC). All new compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, LC-MS, and elemental analyses.

Keywords: Chalcone, cyclic ketone, cyclization, manganese (III) acetate, furan.
