Synthesis of diphenylhexatriene by the Pd-catalyzed dimerization of cinnamyl acetate.


PMID 23414259

Abstract

A mild and operationally simple method to synthesize diphenylhexatriene (DPH) is reported. The method relies on the Pd-catalyzed dimerization of cinnamyl acetate and provides efficient access to DPH in a single step.
