dc.description.abstractAll previous attempts at the synthesis of dicis-octatetraene have failed. However, we find that photolysis of cyclooctatetraene at 303nm and 230K in an octane solution produces a polyene believed to be dicis-octatetraene. The low temperature fluorescence spectrum of the photolysis product is very similar to the reported spectra of other octatetraene isomers (origin at 28, 04 b $cm^{-1}$ single and double bond stretching frequencies of $1,270 cm^{-1}$ and $1,620 cm^{-1}$ respectively). At temperatures greater than 250K the photolysis of cyclooctatriene yields a mixture of all-trans, monocis, and dicis-octatetraene. From these experiments information about the thermal barrier for cis-trans isomerization and the potential surface for the ring opening process is being obtained. These results will be discussed.en_US
