52_15i/2013Inside Cover: Oxidative Cyclodimerization After Tandem Cyclization of Dehydrobenzo[14]annulenes Induced by Alkyllithium (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 15/2013)

Transannular cyclization of dehydrobenzoannulenes is a powerful method to construct new carbon frameworks that are otherwise difficult to achieve. In their Communication on page 4184 ff., Y. Tobe and co-workers show that the reaction of dehydrobenzo[14]annulenes with n-butyllithium leads to an unprecedented oxidative cyclodimerization to form eight-membered-ring products, following threefold transannular bond formations across a 14-membered ring.
