|Abstract:||The synthesis of 17,19-dioxa[2.2.3](1,2,3)cyclophanediene was attempted via a Stevens rearrangement-Hofmann elimination sequence on 19,21-dioxa-2,11- dithia[3.3.3](1,2,3)cyclophane. Pyrene and 4-methylthiopyrene were, however, the isolated products. The structure of the latter was fully characterized by UV, MS, 1D and 2D 1H NMR spectra. Formation of 4-methylthiopyrene was expected to involve a novel base-induced ring cyclization resulting in elimination of methanoate an ion from the methylenedioxy bridge followed by a novel 1,4-hydride shift resulting in the elimination of methane.|
