The triplet-state reactions of 1,4-pentadiene have been investigated using density functional theory (UB3LYP) and ab initio (CASSCF) calculations with a 6-31G basis set. Intramolecular [2 + 2] photocycloadditions and three different reaction pathways leading to vinylcyclopropane have been examined. The computed results are in good agreement with the… (More)
