Abstract

The chemical behavior of the [2n] cyclophanes is determined to a large extent by strain effects.This is shown by a systematic study of isomerisation and addition reactions, respectively. In particular, the paper describes thermal, photochemical and ionic isomerisations of various [2n] cyclophanes, as well as their behavior in Diels-Alder additions, epoxidations and carbene addition reactions.
