[2.n](2,6)Pyridinocrownophanes (3a-e) were efficiently prepared by intramolecular [2 + 2] photocycloaddition of vinylpyridine derivatives under irradiation using a 400-W high-pressure mercury lamp through a Pyrex filter. They were of cis-configuration with respect to the cyclobutane ring, which was proven by the specific methine proton NMR resonances at(More)
A variety of aromatic compounds with both activating and deactivating substituents were brominated with sodium monobromoisocyanurate (SMBI) 1, diethyl ether, diethyl ether-methanesulfonic acid, trifluoroacetic acid, or sulfuric acid were employed as solvents. Thus nitrobenzene was conveniently brominated in sulfuric acid, benzene was readily monobrominated(More)
The reactions of [60]fullerene with bis-o-quinodimethane precursors 3, 4, and 5 containing a dibenzo-18-crown-6, 24-crown-8 and 30-crown-10 moiety, respectively, were investigated. Both 3 and 4 provided trans-4 bisadducts 6a and 7a, respectively, as major product, though the selectivity in the latter was lower than that in the former. As minor product, 6b(More)
