The [n]radialenes are a unique family of fundamental [n]-membered carbocyclic structures with radiating alkenes, which have attracted significant synthetic and theoretical attention. Whereas [3]-, [4]-, and [6]radialenes have been prepared and studied, all efforts to synthesize the five-membered ring compound have thus far met with failure. Here we describe the first synthesis of the fundamental hydrocarbon [5]radialene, C10H10. Our approach was a departure from previous radialene syntheses in...[Show more]
