General description

Indene is oxidized to mixtures of cis- and trans-indandiols and related metabolites by Pseudomonas putida and Rhodococcus sp.

Application

Indene was used in the synthesis of new C60 derivative, indene-C60 bisadduct. It was used in preparing polyindene by the controlled cationic polymerization initiated with cumyl methyl ether/TiCl4 in CH2Cl2.

Indene is oxidized to mixtures of cis- and trans-indandiols and related metabolites by Pseudomonas putida and Rhodococcus sp. isolates. Indene metabolism is consistent with monooxygenase and dioxygenase activity. P. putida resolves enantiomeric mixtures of cis-1,2-indandiol by further selective oxidation of...

A new methodology for the preparation of substituted naphthalenes starting from readily available indenones, organometal reagents, and trimethylsilyldiazomethane via a catalytic rearrangement process is described. Hindered biaryl naphthalenes, including triortho-substituted biaryls, can be accessed through our method. Our results are...
