Discovery and Computational Rationalization of Diminishing Alternation in [n]Dendralenes

Saglam, Mehmet F; Fallon, Thomas; Paddon-Row, Michael N; Sherburn, Michael


The [n]dendralenes are a family of acyclic hydrocarbons which, by virtue of their ability to rapidly generate structural complexity, have attracted significant recent synthetic attention. [3]Dendralene through [8]dendralene have been previously prepared but no higher member of the family has been reported to date. Here, we describe the first chemical syntheses of the "higher" dendralenes, [9]dendralene through [12]dendralene. We also report a detailed investigation into the spectroscopic...[Show more]
