Abstract: The 5,6,9,10-tetrahydro-7,8-benzocyclooctenedione 4 has been synthesized through fragmentation of a bicyclo[4.2.0]octane system using an acyloin reaction on the trans-2,3-dicarboethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene 1 in the presence of trimethylchlorosilane (TMCS). The two intermediates of this reaction, bis(trimethylsiloxy) derivatives 2 and 3, have been isolated and characterized.
Keywords: 7; 8-benzocyclooctenedione; acyloin reaction; conrotatory electrocyclic ring opening; fragmentation of bicyclo[ 4.2.0 ]octane systems; eight-membered rings
