Diels-Alder Reactions of Tetrahalocyclopropenes
By S . W . Tobey and D . C . F. Law[*l
All tetrahalocyclopropenes of type ( I ) "1 undergo 1,4 addition to butadiene at 80 'C in CC14 to give stable Diels-Alder
adducts of type (2) in high yield. These same cyclopropenes
react with furan t o provide structures ( 3 ) and/or ( 4 ) (see
Table 1). Cyclopentadiene reacts with compounds of type
( I ) to provide analogous products.
Derivatives of the Trichlorocyclopropenylium Ion
By R . West[*J
Trichlorocyclopropenylium tetrachloraluminate,C3Cl~AICl~,
reacts with aromatic hydrocarbons with replacement of one,
two, or three chlorines by aromatic groups. When one of the
aromatic rings bears a hydroxyl group, proton elimination
takes place and quinocyclopropene is formed readily.
When C3Clf is allowed to react with three equivalents of a
2,6-dialkyl-substituted phenol, the initially formed triarylcyclopropenylium is converted into a bis(hydroxyary1)quinocyclopropane ( f ) . Oxidation of ( I ) leads to the formation of a triquinocyclopropane ( 2 ) .
All six compounds of type (2) that have been prepared so
far are dark violet solids which exhibit a strong absorption
band at 770 nm. Compounds (2) can be regarded as unusu-
ally stable derivatives of [3]-radialene; when R = tert-butyl
these compounds can be heated to 28OOC without decomposition.
The reaction ( I ) 4 2 ) proceeds via intermediary monoradicals.',The:ESR spectra of the radical anions of (2) show that
the unpaired electron is fully delocalized over the three sixmembered rings.
In accord with the predictions of the Woodward-Hoffmann
rules, ring opening of (3) to ( 4 ) occurs only via ionization of
the halide situated syn to the double bond. When R3 = F [as
in ( I c ) , ( l e ) , and ( I f ) ] , the original adduct ( 3 ) is stable; if
R3 = C1 or Br, ring opening to ( 4 ) occurs so readily that (3)
is not isolated.
The observed order of dienophilic character of cyclopropene
(1) towards furan suggests that in 3,3-difluorinated cyclopropenes [ ( I e ) and ( I f ) ] ring bonding is stabilized and the
energy of the ground state is lowered, thus increasing the
activation energy for Diels-Alder adduct formation. The
high thermal stabilities of (2a) and (2b) relative to (3a) and
(36) reflect the strain built into structures of type (3) by the
oxygen and methylene bridges. These bridges distort the
Diels-Alder adducts in precisely the direction required to
initiate disrotatory cyclopropane-ring opening 121.

Structure of Glutamate Dehydrogenase from
Ox Liver
By H. Sund[*l
Measurement of light scattering as a function of protein concentration (in the concentration range 25 pg/ml-8 mg/ml)

iiterdependence of apparent molecular weight and protein
concentration, indicate that the association-dissociation
equilibrium between the subunits of the glutamate dehydrogenase (molecular weight 270000) and the octamer proceeds
i n a stepwise manner "1. From the dependence of the X-ray
small-angle scattering on the protein concentration (1-33 mg/
ml) it follows that the radius of gyration ( R , = 30.3 A), the
mass per 1 A length (M/l 8, = 2340), and the shape of the
cross-section of glutamate dehydrogenase are independent
of protein concentration. From the comparison of the experimental scattering curves with theoretical cross-section curves
for elliptical cylinders it is concluded that the cross-section is
either circuIar(diameter 86 8 )or ellipticaI with an axial ratio
of 0.8: 1 (long axis 95 A, short axis 76 A). The length of the
associated molecule was found to be 800-900 A. On the basis

The equilibrium between the diastereoisomeric betaines can
be reliably and rapidly established by way of the betaine
ylids. This new type of compound also offers further prepar-
of these results, the shape of the molecule can best be described as cylindrical; furthermore, the results confirm the earlier
conclusion that the dissociation of the prolate molecule into
subunits involves a transfer cleavage. The mass per unit
length measurements and the pronounced side maxima of the
scattering curve suggest that glutamate dehydrogenase is very
loosely built and posseses voids 121.

Mechanism and Stereochemistry of
Wittig-Olefin Syntheses
[*] Dr. M. Schlosser
Organisch-ChemischesInstitut der Universitat
69 Heidelberg, Tiergartenstr. (Germany)
By M. Schlosser[*l
The velocity of, and the yield obtained in, carbonyl olefination
by triphenylphosphonium ylids is strongly influenced by the
reaction conditions. Kinetic studies showed that the slowest
step is usually the decomposition of the zwitterionic adduct,
the betaine, to olefin and triphenylphosphine oxide by way
of the oxaphosphetane ( I ) .
This decomposition is particularly strongly hindered by
lithium salts, which give betaine-LiX adducts. In sum the
following order of increase in reaction rate is observed:
apolar solvent + presence of lithium salts < polar solvent
< salt-free apolar solvent.
On the basis of this mechanistic knowledge procedures have
been developed that direct the carbonyl olefination according
to choice towards cis- or trans-olefins. For this purpose two
stereochemical principles are used:
The Biochemistry of Fructose Metabolism
By W. Lamprechf [ * I
Metabolism of fructose in animal tissues differs markedly
from the normal degradation of glucose with respect to organ
specificty and the sequence of the metabolic pathway. In
mammals, fructose can be degraded only in liver, kidney, and
mucosa of the small intestine; only these organs contain the
appropriate enzyme pattern. Ketohexokinase catalyzes phosphorylation of fructose to its 1-phosphate; in liver this particular enzyme is about twice as active with fructose than with
glucose. Fructose 1-phosphate is further degradedto dihydroxyacetone phosphate and D-glyceraldehyde by liver-aldolase
which differs in its specificity from that of muscle. Dihydroxyacetone phosphate enters the normal glycolytic pathway.
However, D-glyceraldehyde may function as a substrate in
four enzymatic reactions competing with each other:
1. D-glyceraldehyde can be phosphorylated to its 3-phosphate by means of ATP and triokinase.
2. and 3. D-glyceraldehyde can also be reduced to glycerol,
either by a NADH- or a NADPH-dependent alcohol-dehydrogenase. Glycerol is phosphorylated to L-glycerol-3-phosphate (an intermediate of normal glycolysis) by means of
glycerokinase. The reduction, however, seams rather unlikely in liver, due to the high K M of the NADH-specific
