- The photochemistry of 2,5-dibenzoyl(DBX)-and 2,5-diacetyl-1,4-dimethylbenzene (DAX) has been investigated. Both compounds readily undergo photoenolization similar to 0-alkylphenyl ketones. However, unlike 0-alkylphenyl ketones DAX and DBX are each capable of undergoing two tandem photoenolizations. Photoenols derived from o-alkylphenyl ketones have been successfully trapped with Diels-Alder dienophiles to provide a convenient synthesis of substituted tetralins. Similarly, Diels-Alder trapping of DBX photoenils afforded substituted tetra- and octahydro anthracenes. Further mainpulation of these photadducts provided the corresponding anthracenes in good yield. The photochemistry of DAX and DBX will be discussed, in particular their use in the synthesis of substituted anthracenes.
