The metal reduction of 1,3-diphenylbenzo[c]furan (1) t o the corresponding dianion (I2-) has been carried out by alkali-metals. A detailed (1 D and 2D) n.m.r. investigation of (12-) enables characterization of its charge distribution as well as its spatial structure. The spectra of (I2-) differs when three alkalimetals are used for the reduction process. These differences are explained by an ion-solvation equilibrium which in turn explains the different stereoselectivity observed in thedoi:10.1039/p29880000031 fatcat:jh7hqjdh3rgcrlybglvwr6kieu
