Mehta, Goverdhan and Sarma, Srirama PVV (2000) Bucky-bowls. A general approach to benzocorannulenes: synthesis of mono-,di- and tri-benzocorannulenes. In: Chemical Communications (1). pp. 19-20.
We outline a conceptually simple and general route to bowlshaped benzocorannulenes based on readily assembled PAHs which on flash vacuum pyrolysis result in the sequential formation of a five- and six-membered ring; following this approach, syntheses of mono-, di- and tribenzocorannulenes have been achieved.
