Stabel and isolable 8π electrons antiaromatic compounds, 2-vinyl and 2,5-divinyl substituted 1,4-diazapentalenes were synthesized via an oxidation reaction of correspondingly substituted 1,4-dihydro-3,6-di-tert-butylpyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrroles which were prepared by an electrophilic addition reaction of dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate (DMAD).
