Preview

The arene dioxides of five 1-substituted pyrenes have been synthesized using dimethyldioxirane. The diasteroisomeric distribution of the dioxides has been determined. X-ray crystallographic structures of the dioxides have also been obtained. These structures show that for the cis dioxides the molecular structures show a departure from planarity, the extent of which is dependent on the substituent.

Keywords: APT, attached proton test; CCD, Charge Coupled Device; DMD, dimethyldioxirane; mp, melting point; GLC, gas liquid chromatography; PAH, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon; TLC, thin-layer chromatography; TMS, tetramethylsilane.
