(Philips HPK 125; Pyrex filter) with 3a within a few minutes. (s-cis-Butadiene)zirconocene 2 also proves to be no
Photochemical Isomerization by
Intramolecular Diels-Alder Reaction

Dedicated to Professor Giinther 0. Schenck on the
occasion of his 70th birthday
As part of a study of the relationship between molecular
geometry and excited state reactivity, we recently prepared
cis- 1,2-di(9-anthryl)ethylene 1 in order to compare its photochemical and photophysical properties with those of its
trans-isomer 2[1-31. Attempts to induce photochemical
trans+cis isomerization were not successful, but irradiation of 1 in cyclohexane (1> 300 nm) produced the transisomer 2 in nearly quantitative yield, together with small
amounts of the [4n. 4.111cycloaddition product 3IZ1.At low
conversion of 1, however, equal quantum yields (0.0007)
were estimated for both the geometrical isomerization to 2
and the cycloaddition to 3.

the isomers 1 and 2, 2 is consumed at a similar rate as 1,
with formation of 4a.
These observations suggest that-analogous to the reaction of 1+ 2 with 0lefins[~~-4is formed from the intermediary product (q2-butadiene)zirconocene719]oia the intermediates 8 and 9 . Therefore, it appears that the selectivity
control of the zirconocene-induced coupling of conjugated
dienes with aldehydes and ketones may in some cases depend decisively on the formation and properties of intermediary (q2-diene)metallocene complexes"01.

We have now investigated the wavelength dependence
of the photochemical isomerization of 1 and found a novel
intramolecular cycloaddition in which the 1,2-bond of an
anthracene n-system participates as a dienophile in a
Diels-Alder reaction.
Irradiation of 1 (20 mg) in cyclohexane (900 mL) at
50 "C for 6 h under argon (A> 392 nm) results in complete
isomerization. After separation of the trans-isomer 2 (37%
yield) 3 remains and, surprisingly, the novel dissymmetric
photo-isomer 4 (500/0 yield, colorless crystals, m.p. ca.
180 "C, decomp.).
The high-resolution mass spectrum, the 270 MHz 'HNMR spectrum, and the electronic absorption spectrum
are consistent with the structure 4 (Fig. 3a). Evidence for
this structure was also obtained by dehydrogenation with
(DDQ), which afforded the triptycene derivative 5 (yellow crystals, m.p.
293°C). The structure of 5 is supported by its 'H-NMR
spectrum and by its electronic absorption spectrum, which

A Polymeric Organolithium Compound with
Cubic Li4C4 Structural Units**
By Bernd Schubert and Erwin Weiss*
For systematic investigations on the structure of organolithium compounds we prepared some phenylethynyllithium compounds containing additional diamine ligands: [(PhC = CL),tmeda], [(PhC = Li)tmpda], 1 and
[(PhC=CLi)4(tmhda)z] 2 (tmeda = N,N,N’,N’-tetramethylethylenediamine, Me2N(CH2)2NMe2;tmpda = N,N, N‘,N’tetramethylpropanediamine, MezN(CHZ)3NMe2;tmhda=
N, N,N’,N’-tetramethylhexanediamine,
The length of the diamine ligand obviously has a large
influence on the composition and structure of these compounds. Thus, 1 is a dimer with two phenylethynyl
bridges”], isostructural to the phenyl compound (PhLi .

Fig. 3. Electronic absorption spectra of cycloaddition products 4 (a) and 3
(b) in cyclohexane.
Upon photo-excitation (1< 360 nm) in cyclohexane, 4
undergoes smooth cycloreversion to give 1: the quantum
yield of this reaction is 0.20, exceeding that of the formation of 4 from l by a factor of 300. Hence, 4 can be obtained only when its photo-excitation is prevented by use
of appropriate filters. The quantum yield for the photolytic
cycloreversion of 3- 1 is three times as high as that of the
reaction 4-1, but its UV spectrum (Fig. 3b) precludes
photo-excitation when 1 is irradiated in Pyrex apparatus.
The low concentration of 1 employed in the experiment
described above (20 mg in 900 mL cyclohexane) is of critical importance for the photochemical formation of 4. Numerous attempts to obtain 4 by photochemical isomerization of higher concentrations of 1 in cyclohexane failed
since the trans-isomer 2, whose solubility at room temperature is only 2 mg/L, always precipitated soon after commencement of irradiation, and became the major product.
Surprisingly, the efficiency of cis-trans isomerization surpasses that of the intramolecular cycloaddition 1+4 after
precipitation of 2 has commenced. Absorption spectroscopy indicates that when most of the incident light is absorbed by crystalline 2 the photochemical formation of 4
from 1 virtually ceases, while the rate of conversion of 1
into 2 is enhanced. The use of other solvents in which 2 is
more soluble than in cyclohexane is impaired by the fact
that the quantum yield of cis-trans isomerization is solvent
dependent[”: specifically in cyclohexane solution can the
intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction of 1 to afford 4 compete efficiently with the geometrical isomerization leading
to 2.
