Irradiation of styrylnaphthofurans (3a, 3b) [10-1 M] (benzene) under anaerobic conditions gives mainly dimeric products (65-70%): [2+2] ethene-ethene cycloaddition products (9a, 9b, 10a, 10b and 11a, 11b) (40-44%) and [2+2] ethene-furan cycloaddition products (12a, 12b) (20-22%). Minor quantities of electrocyclization products (7a, 7b) (3.5-4.5%) and dihydrocyclization products (8a, 8b) (3-4.5%) are also isolated. The structures of the products are based on 1H and 13C NMR spectra, applying COSY, LR COSY, APT, HETCOR and NOESY techniques.
