The Synthesis of 4,6,8-Trimethylazulene: An Organic Laboratory Experiment.
Garst, Michael E.; And Others
Journal of Chemical Education, v60 n6 p510-11 Jun 1983
A two-stage synthesis of 4,6,8-trimethylazulene was developed for use in the undergraduate experiment, highlighting concepts not usually covered in the laboratory. The experiment requires purification procedures of chromatography and of sublimation and illustrates concepts of aromaticity, molecular orbital theory, and carbodium ion reactivity. (JN)
