Title

Highly efficient synthesis of extended triptycenes via Diels–Alder cycloaddition in water under microwave radiation

Language

English

Abstract

Microwave-irradiated Diels-Alder reactions of anthracene and endoxides (6a-g) in water afforded the cycloadducts (8a-g) with high efficiencies. The extended triptycenes (2a-g) were readily obtained by dehydration of 8a-g in a mixture of AcOH and Ac2O with good overall yields. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
