Guidelines for the application of the Scholl reaction were developed. Labeling experiments demonstrate that the Scholl reaction fails in small, unsubstituted oligophenylenes (e.g., o-terphenyl) due to oligomerization of the products (e.g., triphenylene). Incorporation of suitably placed blocking groups (e.g., t-butyl) suppresses oligomerization. The(More)
