Oxidative trimerization of o-dialkoxybenzenes to hexaalkoxytriphenylenes: molybdenum(v) chloride as a novel reagent

Abstract

Symmetrically substituted hexaalkoxytriphenylenes are obtained from o-dialkoxybenzenes by oxidative trimerization with MoCl 5 in high yields; oxidative coupling of a 3,3′,4,4′-tetraalkoxybiphenyl and 1,2-dialkoxybenzenes yields unsymmetrically substituted derivatives of triphenylene and a direct coupling of a 3,3′,4,4′-tetraalkoxybiphenyl with alkoxyphenol produces the monofunctionalized triphenylenes.
