    • Formation of an Isomeric Mixture of Dienynes Instead of a Diallene 

      Sydnes, Leiv K.; Petrova, Susanna M. (Journal article, 2020)
      Attempts to convert 1,1,2,2,7,7,8,8-octaethoxyocta-3,5-diyne to a symmetric allene by reduction with lithium aluminum hydride failed. Instead reduction accompanied by isomerization occurred and afforded 1,1,2,7,8,8-hexae ...
