2014_27/2014A Short-Step Synthesis of 1,6-Methano[10]annulene-3,4-dicarboximides and Their Benzene-, Naphthalene-, and Thiophene-Annulated Compounds (Eur. J. Org. Chem. 27/2014)

The cover picture shows a rapid stream in a valley of the Hirayu area in the Gifu Prefecture located in the middle of the Japanese mainland. The schemes show an improved one-pot reaction with phosphorane reagents, along the stream, and the previously reported multistep reactions from dicarbaldehydes to 1,6-methano[10]annulene-dicarboximides. The one-pot procedure was successfully applied to the synthesis of the arene-annulated 1,6-methano[10]annulenes. Details are discussed in the article by M. Oda et al. on p. 5976 ff. Even after the eminent achievements by the late Dr. E. Vogel, the field of 1,6-methano[10]annulene chemistry is still interesting and fertile. The authors thank Mr. Yoshimitsu Kumai in our laboratory for his great help in preparing this cover picture.
