Undergoes many interesting transannular reactions to give bicyclic derivatives. Reaction with chloroform under free-radical conditions gives 2-(trichloromethyl)bicyclo[3.3.0]octane: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 93 (1973); J. Am. Chem. Soc., 86, 946, 1885 (1964); Tetrahedron, 20, 1843 (1964). With Iodosobenzene diacetate, B24531, gives 2,6-diacetoxybicyclo[3.3.0]octane: Org. Synth. Coll., 8, 43 (1993). Addition of borane gives the important hydroborating agent 9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane (9-BBN): J. Am. Chem. Soc., 90, 5280, 5281 (1968); J. Org. Chem., 46, 3978, 4599 (1981). Sulfur dichloride gives 2,6-dichloro-9-thiabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane: J. Org. Chem., 31, 1663, 1669 (1966); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 692 (1998)./n
Allylic monobromination (NBS) followed by dehydrobromination gives 1,3,5-cyclooctatriene: Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 191 (1998). Addition of elemental bromine to the diene double bonds followed by dehydrobromination of the resulting tetrabromides with KO-t-Bu/ 18-crown-6 in THF gives the highly-reactive 1,5-cyclooctadiiyne. On prolonged base treatment, or in DMSO, conversion to cyclooctatetraene occurs: Chem. Ber., 127, 1529 (1994)./n
Useful bidentate ligand in transition metal chemistry. For examples, see Chloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)iridium(I) dimer, 12749 and Chloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)rhodium(I) dimer, 10466./n
