Abstract

In continuation of previous work on cyclopentadienone dimers [3], thermal and photochemical interconversions of the isomeric diketones 1, 3, and 5 by skeletal rearrangements have been established to the extent summarized in schemes 2 and 3, and the intramolecular [2+2] cycloaddition 1 → 2 was found to be reversible photochemically.
