27_06/1988The cover shows propella[34]prismane. It may be described as a cubane, four edges of which are bridged by trimethylene groups. It was prepared in only three steps from cyclodeca-1,6-diyne via a metal- and light-induced double dimerization. This synthesis is a prime example of how complicated molecules may be synthesized by including metals in the reaction sequence. Further details on propella[34]prismane and its thermal and photochemical rearrangement products are reported by R. Gleiter and M. Karcher on p. 840. (The cover picture was drawn using the MOLEK-9000 program (ISKA-Bensheim) on an HP-9000-350 computer.)
