Preparation of and attack by nucleophiles on 2, 5-norbornadione
Several oxidative approaches to 2,5-norbornadione have been tried resulting in an improved preparative route to the compound. 2,5-Norbornadione has also been reacted with phenylmagnesium-bromide, p-tolymagnesium bromide, o-tolylmagnesium bromide, and 1-napthylmagnesium bromide. The resulting 2,5-diols have been characterized and shown to be the endo, endo alcohols.
