Attempted synthesis of Fjord-region containing polycyclic fluoranthenes reveals a steric-driven double Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement
Date of Original Version
A double Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement takes place commonly in the synthesis of sterically hindered polycyclic fluoranthenes via cyclodehydration reactions and the extent of intramolecular steric crowding within the initially formed tertiary cationic intermediate controls the equilibrium between the expected and the rearranged product.
