Abstract

Introduction

The purpose of this research endeavor was to determine the structures of the adducts of dichloroketene with diphenylfulvene and benzodiphenylfulvene. Structure elucidation was attempted by chemical degradation and nmr analysis.

The structures of the adducts of dichloroketene with cyclopentadiene1,2 and indene3,4 have been determined by previous workers. The influence of the exocyclic double bond on the mode of cycloaddition is unknown.
