The chemical reactivity of syn-3 was investigated. The experimental results showed that the central double bond of this system is inert toward chemical reactions. To determine the reactivity of this central double bond. we synthesized syn- and anti-7 and recorded their photoelectron spectra. Low first-ionization potentials of syn- and anti-7 (7.6 eV) dearly indicated that these compounds should be highly reactive.
