Abstract

Photodimerization of β-nitrostyrene by sunlight or a mercury arc lamp yields l,3-diphenyl-2,4-dinitrocyclobutane (II). Only one stereoisomer was obtained. Reduction of the dimer gave a diamine which was identical with the diamine produced by the Curtius rearrangement of α-truxillic acid. Thus the structure of II is unequivocally established as 1, trans-3-dipheny-2-cis-4-trans-dinitrocyclobutane. An isomer III of the dimer is identified as having the geometric structure corresponding to y-truxillic acid by a similar series of steps.
