(Chemical Equation Presented) Aconvenient and high-yielding three-step synthesis of the simplest branched triene, dendralene, has been devised. The synthesis is robust and operationally simple, requiring no chromatography and involving no protecting groups or specialized equipment, allowing the synthesis of the volatile hydrocarbon in pure, solvent free form on a multigram scale. The stability, dimerization when stored neat, and Diels-Alder reactivity of dendralene - including double...[Show more]
