In the present communication we report differential thermal analysis (DTA)"] studies on the decomposition of
o-halophenyllithiums, o-XC,H,Li ( I )
and trichloromethyllithium ( 2 j f 3 - ' ] in the presence of ethers and
amines. Compounds ( I ) and (2) were obtained by the
addition of 1.0-10ml of a 1 . 0 ~
solution of o-XC,H,Br

thus resulting in immediate elimination of lithium halide
owing to intramolecular coordinationX+Li. If this concept
is correct complexes of ( I ) with cyclic ethers and other
ligands of high basicity (e.g . dimethoxyethane or tetramethylethylenediamine) should be more stable that those
with dialkyl ethers owing to a stronger L i t 0 bond.
Since the stability of complexes of (1) with cyclic ethers,
dimethoxyethane, and tetramethylethylenediamine was
indeed found to be independent of polarity, it seems reasonable to conclude that the L i c O bond strength is mainly
determined by the steric requirements of the solvent in connection with its ability to undergo inversion.
(X=F, C1, Br) or C1,CX' (X'=H, Br) in isopentane or npentane to an equal volume of 1.0N n-C,H,Li in the same
solvent at - 150°C. The mixture was then allowed to warm
to room temperature ( z l h) in a DTA instrument. The
results are shown in Table 1.Independent experiments have
shown that the observed exothermic effects are due to the
decomposition of ( I ) or (2)16].
As is also evident from the data in Table 1, the stability of
complexes ( I ) increases in the sequence X = Br < C1< F.
This corresponds to the donor strengths of the halogenst7*'!
An analogous, albeit less pronounced, stabilization was
also found for (2) in polar solvents (Table 1).This doubtless
means that dichlorocarbene formation does not proceed

As is seen from Table 1 the thermal stability of ( I ) increases substantially only on going from acyclic to cyclic
ethers. Within the two series of ethers the stability remains
practically unchanged in spite of the varying polarity.
These results are not in accord with formation of dehydrobenzene (3) via an o-halophenyl anion intermediate ( 4 ) [71,
since such a mechanism would require a decrease in stability of ( I ) with increasing solvent polarity. Hence, we
assume that (3) is formed by a concerted p-elimination of
LiX from a complex of ( I ) with ether (or trialkylamine)['. 'I.

It is noteworthy that the temperatures of decomposition of
(2) in triethylamine and acyclic ethers are the same. This
fact may serve as further evidence for the above mechanism, because, according to Lewis and Brown[1oJ,
of alkyllithium compounds with dialkyl ethers and corresponding trialkylamines are equally stable.

Formation of Macrocyclic Polyolefins
on Autoxidation of Bifunctional
Alk ylenephosphoranes
By Hans Jiirgen Bestmann and Hans Pfiiller["
Dedicated to Professor Georg Wittig on his 75th birthday
Autoxidation of alkylenephosphoranes (ylides)of structure
affords olefins R-CH=CH-R[']
and triphenylphosphane oxide. If bifunctional alkylenephosphoranes (bisylides) ( I ) are used, cycloolefins (2) ['* 31
are obtained. ( I ) , R=-(CH,),--,
reacts with cyclizing
dimerization to yield 1,5-cyclooctadiene[ZJ.Our further
investigations have given the following results :
If the structure of the starting bisylide of type ( I ) permits
intramolecular ring closure on autoxidation, yielding a
five-, six- or seven-membered ring, such a ring is formed
either mainly or exclusively. A compound such as ( 3 ) ,
however, does not yield any medium-size ring compounds,
e. g. ( 4 ) , but macrocyclic polyolefins such as ( 5 ) -(9) are
obtained by dimerization, trimerization etc. Further
examples are collected in Table 1.
Correct analytical data and NMR and mass spectra are
available for all the pure mono-, di-, and tri-mers listed in
the Table. Formation of further cyclooligomers, of which
in some cases only the trimer could be isolated, can be recognized by C, H analyses, NMR spectra, and clearly from
the field ions in the mass spectrum; here the molecular ions
gave the strongest mass lines, e.g. (6) M' =414, ( 7 )
M' = 552, (S} M' = 690, (9) M' = 828. After hydrogenation, correspondingly heavier molecular ions appear.
For examples 4,6 and 7, the proportion of cis,cis-isomer in
the dimer was determined (silver nitrate complex). It was
then shown that this isomer was formed preferentially:
cis,cis-1,9-cyclohexadecadiene.2AgN03, m.p. 142 to
143"C, 78 % ; cis,cis-l,l0-dioxa-5,14-cyclooctadecadiene~
2AgN03, rn.p. 153"C, 62%; &,cis-1,ll-cycloeicosadiene.2AgN03, m.p. 135-136°C (m.p. 136-137°C[61)
78 %.
All the bifunctional alkylenephosphoranes, except that
used for No. 5 of the Table (poor yield), are sparingly
soluble in dimethyl sulfoxide. We therefore assume that
formation of macrocyclic rings on autoxidation of the bisylides in an intermolecular Wittig reaction (according to
begins with formation of a cis-double bond. SubRef. [I])
sequently, either an intramolecular reaction may occur or
the chain may grow by further intermolecular C=C junctions before ring closure to the cyclooligomer follows.
