Darzens synthesis of tetralin derivatives

What is Darzens synthesis of tetralin derivatives?

The Darzens synthesis of tetralin derivatives is a chemical process that involves cyclization of compounds with α-benzyl-α-allylacetic acid structure. This is achieved by subjecting the compounds to moderate heating in concentrated sulfuric acid, which results in the formation of tetralin derivatives.
