Application

• Used in the synthesis of highly organic film for silicon surfaces to improve its chemical and physical properties.
• Used in liquid state organic dye lasers.
• Used as triplet state quencher to reduce dye blinking.

General description

Cyclooctatetraene is an 8p electron system and has a triplet ground state if the p electrons are delocalized. It is antiaromatic hence highly unstable and reactive. It adopts a non-planar boat conformation to attain stability with alternating single and double bonds and hence behaves like a polyolefin.
