The Di-π-Methane Photorearrangement

  • Dwaine O. Cowan
  • Ronald L. Drisko

Abstract

Early examples of the class of reactions now known as di-π-methane photorearrangements were reported by Griffin et al.,(1,2) Zimmerman and co-workers(3,4) Meinwald and Smith,(5) and Srinivasan and Carlough.(6) This rearrangement occurs upon photolysis of molecules having two unsaturated moieties bonded to a single saturated carbon atom. A typical example is as follows(6): This type of reaction has been observed for a large number of acyclic and cyclic molecules.
