Synthesis and characterization of cyclooctatetrathiophenes with different connection sequences.


Based on the selectivity of deprotonation of 5,5'-bistrimethylsilyl-2,3'-bithiophene (4) in the presence of n-BuLi, three new cyclooctatetrathiophenes (COThs), COTh-1, COTh-2, and COTh-3 have been efficiently developed via intermolecular or intramolecular cyclizations. Their crystal structures clearly show that the different connectivity sequence of the… (More)
