In the course of attempting to synthesize cyclodeca‐1,6‐diyne (IIIa) from cis, cis‐cyclodeca‐1,6‐diene (XIX) derivatives by a successive bromination and dehydrobromination, transannular addition of one mole of bromine to the diene system occurred. The reaction products were bicyclic decalin derivatives. New symmetric and unsymmetric derivatives of XIX were prepared. Various approaches towards obtaining annulene‐quinone (XXIX) are reported.
