An isolable o-quinodimethane and its fixation of molecular oxygen to give an endoperoxide.

Abstract

Addition of the germene Mes2Ge=CR2 to 1,4-naphthoquinone yields a singular o-quinodimethane which gives Diels-Alder reactions at room temperature and reacts cleanly with oxygen to form an endoperoxide.
