    A synthesis of di-, tri- and tetra-substituted furans from reaction of the corresponding ketones and α-haloketones with LiHMDS is reported. Reaction under continuous-flow conditions gave increased yields and removed the need for external cooling when compared to the unoptimised batch conditions.
