Abstract

Oxidation of bis(2-hydroxy-1-naphthyl)methane with DDQ gave the novel dispiro compounds cis- and trans-I together with spiro compounds II (n = 1, 2). The structures of I were detected by spectral methods. Hydrogenation of I gave 1-(2-hydroxy-1-naphthyl)methyl-2-(2-hydroxy-1-naphthyloxy)naphthalene by $C-C$ bond cleavage. A number of analogs of I were prepared similarly. A reaction mechanism involving quinol ether intermediates is proposed.
