An Unexpected Dimerisation in Ambient Daylight

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Base catalysed condensation of indan-1,3-dione with 2-naphthaldehyde gave a mixture of the expected products 2-naphthalen-2-ylmethylene-indan-1,3-dione and a four membered ring dimer resulting from a daylight catalysed photochemical dimerisation.
