of ca. 7.3,approximately comparable with that of a carboxylic acid'']. Treatment of ( 4 a ) with nickel acetate in boiling
acetonitrile gives the nickel complex ( 3 b ) , isolated as its
crystalline perchlorate; with cobalt(r1) chloride[9] in the
presence of sodium acetate in methanol at 50"C, the
dicyanocobalt(II1)-corphin complex ( 3 d ) can easily be
obtained following work up with cyanide in contact with
air[' '1.
The complexes ( 3 a ) and (3c), as well as the metal-free
corphinium ion (4), exist in trifluoroacetic acid as derivatives of the more highly symmetrical (trans-cis)4-1,5,9,13tetraaza[i6]annulene system ( 5 ) ; in trifluoroacetic acid
their proton resonance spectra are reduced to three singlets" '1 and the corresponding electronic spectra show
unambiguously the presence of a non-corrinoid chromophore in this solvent [cf. data for ( 5 ) in Scheme 11. The
signals of the vinyl and methylene protons of the doubly
positively charged tetraazaannulene system ( 5 ) are at distinctly higher field than the corresponding groups of signals
from the singly positively charged corphinium ion (4)I"I;
the interpretation of this shift as an effect of a paramagnetic
ring current['3] in the pericyclically conjugated 4n-x-system
( 5 ) constitutes specific support for the structural assignment.
New experimental findings" 41 concerning the biosynthesis
of vitamin B I 2 have caused us to lose confidence in a
hypothesis we have cherished for a number of years,
namely, that the corphin ligand system might play a role
in the biosynthesis of naturally occurring corrinoidsE2'.Fortunately, however, the compounds of type ( 5 ) merit interest
as the porphinoid representatives of the heteroanalogs
of carbocyclic annulenes['5].

protonation pri ibly leads
to a mixture of peripherally deprotonated neutral products; these were
very sparingly soluble and were not further investigated.

acids, such as sulfuric or perchloric acid, rearrangement occurs (presumably tautomerization), whose interpretation requires further investigation.

In 3,3':6',3":6",6-triphenanthrylene (1 ) the annulene conjugation that can be formulated as (1 a)+I 6 ) is completely suppressed in favor of x-interaction within the
phenanthrene units: the 'H-NMR spectrum does not show
any diamagnetic ring current in the macrocyclic system
but is in accordance with the existence of three largely
unperturbed phenanthrene unitsc21.

Fig. I Comparison of the ‘H-NMR spectra of ( 4 ) and ( 2 )
( 2 ) ,in which the annulene conjugation competes with only
one benzenoid phenanthrene unit.
For the synthesis of (2), 3,6-dimethylphenanthrene was
prepared from 4,4-dimethyl-trans-stilbene (Hg high-pressure lamp, 0.01 M solution in 5 : I cyclohexane/benzene;
iodine; 61 % yield) or from 2-(4‘-methylphenethy1)magnesium bromide and 4-methylcyclohexanone ~lia4-methyl- 1(4‘-methylphenethyl)cyclohexanol~41
and 1,2,3,4,4a,9,10,10aoctahydr0-3,6-dimethylphenanthrene(overall yield 25 %).
Successive conversion into 3,6-bis(brornornethyl)phenanthrene14’ (NBS/CCl,, 57 % yield) and 3,6-bis(triphenylphosphoniomethy1)phenanthrenedibromidek4](triphenylphosphane/acetonitrile, 80% yield), and a double Wittig
reaction with 4-pentynal[’] afforded 3,6-bis(l-hexen-5ynyllphenanthrene (3) (45 % yield)[41,which was cyclized
in 50% yield to the 18-membered ring system (4)[“] by
copper(i1) acetate in dimethylformamide. Isomerization
with potassium tert-butoxide in tert-butyl alcohol/benzene
finally yielded (2)‘“l as red crystals (from cyclohexane;
dec. above 200°C; 48% yield).
(I)[’], it is precisely these protons that normally absorb
at lowest field strength.
Because of the importance of this finding the assignment
of the two 2H singlets at t=1.94 and 3.21 to 9-H, 10-H
and 4-H, 5-H, respectively, was checked by synthesis of
a molecule (2) deuteriated at the 9,lO-positions: 4,4dimethyltolane was catalytically (Pd/BaS04 pyridine,
ethyl acetate) deuteriated to a,P-dideuteriostilbene; photochemical cyclodehydrogenation afforded 9,lO-dldeuterio3,6-dimethylphenanthrene, which was converted by the
reaction series given above into a species (2) selectively
deuteriated at positions 9 and 10. With this compound
the signal at T = 1.94 did not occur; the signal at t= 3.21
can therefore be assigned unequivocally to 4-H, 5-H.
Dibenzo[ab,de]cyclooctadecene ( 5 ) differs from (2) in that
the rn-linkage of the benzene rings prevents complete cyclic
conjugation around the macrocyclic system. The synthesis

formed dark red crystals (m. p. 160°C, dec.) that are extremely sensitive to air. Its ‘H-NMR spectrum (CS,, 100
The ‘H-NMR spectrum of (2) contains the following
absorptions (220 MHz, CS2)161:T = 1.87 and 2.15 (AB system, J A ~ = 8 H z 1-H,
8-H and 2-H, 7-H), 1.94 (s, 9-H,
10-H), 2.57 (d, 5=16Hz, 11-H, 22-H), 2.87-3.09 (m, 6
external H), 3.21 (br. s, 4-H, 5-H), 4.50 (-dd, 31=16Hz,
J z =10 Hz, 12-H, 21-H), 4.78 (m, 15-H, 18-H).
This spectrum is remarkable for the following reasons:
The signals cannot be divided between “aromatic” and
“olefinic” protons; instead, the signals of all the inner
protons are shifted to higher field strength and those of
the external protons are shifted to lower field strength.
This observation, which indicates a diamagnetic ring current in the macrocyclic system, is particularly clearly shown
when a comparison is made with the corresponding ‘HNMR absorptions of the precursor (4) that is not cyclically
conjugated (see Fig. l)17].
The opposite shifts of the signals of the neighboring proton
pairs 11-H, 22-H and 12-H, 21-H in, respectively, the xand the P-positions t o the phenanthrene unit are striking;
even more so is the large shift of the signals of 4-H,
5-H to higher field strength beyond those of all the external
protons, including those of the “olefinic” part of the molecule, whereas in phenanthrenes, including the macrocyclic

MHz) is in accordance with an aromatic and an olefinic
part in the molecule. In particular, with ( 5 ) the absorption
of the two inner aromatic protons, which correspond to
4-H, 5-H in (2), occurs at the lowest field strength (t= 1 S6).
Since the geometrical relations within the 18-membered
rings of (2) and ( 5 ) are similar, it must thence be concluded

[7] In this comparison it must, nevertheless, be remembered that in
( 4 ) , 12-H,21-H and, to a smaller extent, also 4-H, 5-H are under the
deshielding influence of the anisotropy of the diacetylene group, although
this shifts these signals by n o more than 0.5 ppm to lower held strength,
as shown by the comparison with the spectrum of (3).
that the strong shielding of 4-H, 5-H in (2) cannot be
the result of local anisotropic effects of the double bonds.
If the induction of a diamagnetic ring current is taken
as the criterion of aromaticity, it follows that the macrocyclic system in (Z), unlike those in ( I ) and ( 5 ) , exhibits
annulenoid aromaticity. Comparison with the very much
stronger shielding of the inner protons in the monocyclic
[ I8]annulene shows, however, that the annulene character
of (2) is substantially weakened by fusion with the
phenanthrene system and that there is here a borderline
case between benzenoid and non-benzenoid aromaticity.

3-Methoxybenzyl alcohol
By Karl Clauss and Harald Jensen"]
Bases such as sodium hydroxide solution, alkali-metal
alkoxides or tertiary amines accelerate the reaction appreciably, equivalent amounts of the base favoring smooth
reaction. Suitable solvents are water and, in particular,
methanol. It is advisable to choose a temperature between
20 and 40-C so as to prevent over-hydrogenation. Palladium on charcoal is a suitable catalyst; platinum and
nickel catalysts d o not have comparable activity. Contrary
to the case of the known fission of aryl sulfonates by
an excess of Raney nickel''- 51, catalytic amounts of palladium suffice in our reaction (1.0-1.5mg of Pd per mmol
of ester).
Examples of this hydrogenolysis are collected in Tables

Hydrogenative Removal of Phenolic Hydroxyl

The hetero ring of 1.2,3-benzoxathiazin-4(3H)-one 2,2dioxide opens between oxygen and carbon on catalytic
hydrogenation with palladium-charcoal in the presence
of an equivalent amount of base[']. Application of this
finding to aryl sulfonates (1) showed that phenolic hydroxyl groups in general, in the form of their sulfonic
