Synthesis of 2-alkyl- and 2-aryl-biphenyls

Summary

  1. 1.

    By the reaction of 2-biphenylyllithium with carbonyl compounds the following compounds were prepared; 2-cyclohexylbiphenyl, 9-phenylfluorene, 9,9-diphenylfluorene, 2-(1-hexylheptyl)biphenyl, and 1-(2-biphenylyl)-1-(1-naphthyl)ethane.

  2. 2.

    The structures of these hydrocarbons were proved with the aid of ultraviolet and infrared spectra.
