High-pressure Diels-Alder cycloaddition reactions of 5-ethenyl[2.2]indeno- paracyclophane (1) with 1,4-benzoquinone (2), N-phenylmaleimide (3), and 2-inden-1-one (4) have been studied. Attempts to convert the cycloadducts into the corresponding aromatic helicenophanes failed. All new compounds were characterized by extensive nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) investigations.
