Abstract: In part I, the synthesis of macrocyclic ketones remains challenging, due to the ring strain and/or entropic loss in their formation step. Electrophilic halogen-initiated semipinacol rearrangement is rarely used to approach macrocylic ketones. A series of macrocylic ketones including the natural product, rac-muscone, have been prepared using semipinacol rearrangement. The rearranged products could further undergo Dowd-Beckwith rearrangement reactions to afford cyclic -substituted ketones. We elaborated the asymmetric semipinacol rearrangement reactions to synthesize axially chiral biaryls in a dynamic-kinetic resolution/point-to-axial chirality transfer strategy. Under the established conditions, axially chiral biaryls were obtained in good atroposelectivity and diastereoselectivity. In part II, we synthesized two series of BBT-based compounds. X-ray crystallographic analysis confirmed the partial aromaticity recovery of the thiadiazole ring. Magnetic measurements revealed that some of them exhibit considerable diradical character and a small singlet-triplet energy gap. The NIR absorption of these BBT oligomers implies their potential application.
