Abstract
The syntheses of several tribenzotriquinacenes bearing six methoxy groups at the outer peripheral positions of the aromatic rings are reported. The centro-methyl derivative is accessible in surprisingly good yield through two-fold cyclodehydration in the final step of a synthesis route which requires special care in the preparation of some electron-rich key intermediates, such as 5,6-dimethoxy-2-methylindane-1,3-dione and bis(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)methanol. X-ray single-crystal structure analysis of the centro-methyl derivative confirms its C-3v-symmetrical molecular structure but, at variance from the parent centro-methyltribenzotriquinacene and the similarly shaped cyclotriveratrylene, the hexamethoxytribenzotriquinacene analog does not form columnar stacks in the solid state. Functionalization of the three benzhydrylic bridgehead positions leads to the tetramethyl analog and the bridgehead triol in good yields. In contrast, attempts to functionalize the ortho positions by nitration or bromination mainly give rise to ring cleavage through electrophilic ipso attack, which parallels the behavior of cyclotribenzylenes and cyclotriveratrylenes.
