A base-promoted one-pot tandem reaction has been developed from 3-(1-alkynyl)chromones with various acetonitriles to afford functionalized amino-substituted xanthones 3 under microwave irradiation. This tandem process involves multiple reactions, such as Michael addition/cyclization/1,2-addition, without a transition metal catalyst. This method provides an efficient approach to build up natural product-like diversified amino-substituted xanthone scaffolds rapidly.
