Abstract

Methods for the synthesis of [2,2]paracyclophane derivatives containingo- andm-carboranyl substituents in position 4, separated from the [2,2]paracyclophane system by one or two C atoms (alcohols and ketones) were developed. The Clemmensen reduction of a number of ketones of the [2,2]paracyclophane ando-carbonane series occurs abnormally. The reduction of 1-benzoyl-o-carboranes to the corresponding alcohols by zinc in ethanol in a neutral medium was performed for the first time.
