Abstract

The catalytic effect of the pi-complexes of copper chloride (1 and II) and of rhodium chloride (III) on the photochemical synthesis of isomers of (C(8)H(12)) Cu(2)Cl(2) (C(7)H(8))(2) C(8)H(12))(2) RH(2)Cl(2) I II III 1, 5-cyclooctadiene and bicyclo (2.2. 1) hepta-2, 5-diene. The compounds IV... VII have been synthesized by the following reactions, the yields in weight per cent in each case are noted within parenthesis: (Image Omitted)

Use of Pi Complexes of Olefins, as Photochemical Catalysts

The catalytic effect of the pi-complexes of copper chloride (1 and II) and of rhodium chloride (III) on the photochemical synthesis of isomers of (C(8)H(12)) Cu(2)Cl(2) (C(7)H(8))(2) C(8)H(12))(2) RH(2)Cl(2) I II III 1, 5-cyclooctadiene and bicyclo (2.2. 1) hepta-2, 5-diene. The compounds IV... VII have been synthesized by the following reactions, the yields in weight per cent in each case are noted within parenthesis:

Catalytic effects of the kind described here have not been reported before in photochemical systems. Although compounds IV... VII have been synthesized by other routes, the present methods offer simpler syntheses. Compounds IV, VI, and VII may have use as high energy fuels.
