Cycloaddition products of 3-oxido-1-phenylpyridinum and 1-cyanoacenaphthylene
Journal of the Chemical Society. Perkin transaction 1
Date of Publication
Cycloaddition of 3-oxido-1-phenylpyridinium 8a to 1-cyanoacenaphthylene 9a affords three isomeric adducts (13, 14 and 15). Structures for these compounds resulted from a comparative NMR study, as well as an X-ray crystallographic determination of isomer 15. Attempts to eliminate HCN from compounds 13–15 resulted only in cycloreversion to 1-cyanoacenaphthylene.....
