Reaction information

*#Reaction file

*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure Repeating the procedure described by Shirai, in a 250 mL rbf a solution of 1,4-bis(Octyloxy)benzene (2.04 g, 6.10 mmol), Hg(OAc)2 (4.84 g, 15.19 mmol, 2.49 eq.) and I2 (3.85 g, 15.17 mmol, 2.49 eq.) in DCM (60 mL) was stirred at r.t. for 19 h. The reaction mixture was filtered through Celite 521 with DCM and the organic phase was washed with Na2S2O3 (aqueous, 10% w/v), to the complete disappearance of the pink colour, then with NaHCO(saturated), water and brine, and dried over anhydrous MgSO4. Evaporation of the solvent and recrystallization from EtOH afforded the pure product (3.15 g, 5.37 mmol, yield 88%).
*Yield (%) 88 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
