Some aromatic dienes with ortho- and meta-disubstitution have been subjected to olefin metathesis reactions. Compounds having allylphenyl groups substituted at their ortho positions successfully cyclized into 12-, 14-, and 17-membered alkenes in moderate to good yields, while compounds having the same groups substituted at their meta positions and those having vinylphenyl groups substituted at their ortho positions afforded mainly polymers. o-Allylphenyl 5-hexenyl ether produced 10-membered cyclooxadecadiene in 7.5% yield.
