PART I: PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTIONS OF PHENYLCYCLOBUTADIENOQUINONE
The photolysis of phenylcyclobutadienoquinone in methanol gave dimethyl phenylsuccinate and a compound, [...] of unknown structure.
PART II: THERMAL REACTIONS OF PHENYLCYCLOBUTADIENOQUINONE IN METHANOL
The thermal reaction of phenylcyclobutadienoquinone with methanol in a stainless steel bomb gave 2,4-dimethoxy-3-phenylcyclobutenone, 3-phenyl-4-hydroxy-4-methoxy-2-butenoic acid lactone and dimethyl phenylsuccinate.
PART III: THE PHOTOCHEMICAL SYNTHESIS OF PHENANTHRENES
The photochemical reactions of tetraphenylethylene and trans-stilbene with dissolved oxygen in cyclohexane solutions gave 9,10-diphenylphenanthrene and phenanthrene, respectively.
