Abstract

original image

Not a tetrahedrane derivative but the butatriene.derivative (2) is formed on irradiation of tetrakis(trimethylsilyl)cyclopentadienone (1). During the synthesis of (1), trimethylsilylated cyclopentadienones are obtained as stable intermediates, which are of interest as synthetic building blocks.
