Abstract

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document.

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.
