Straightforward access to various 5- and 6-acylated naphtho[1,2-b]benzofurans was achieved by successive Sonogashira coupling and intramolecular alkyne carbonyl metathesis to assemble the central aromatic C ring of naphtho[1,2-b]benzofurans regiospecifically substituted with an acyl group at the C5 or C6 position.
