A vapor-induced cyclization has been observed in

within which 1,8-bis(2-phenylethynyl)naphthalene (bpen),

iodine vapor to yield the corresponding indeno[2,1-a]phenalene

solvent-free nature, was followed spectroscopically,

of lattice solvent for molecular iodine in

under mild conditions and without the need to suspend the

reactions is further highlighted by the subsequent

phenylindeno[2,1-a]phenalene (ipp) with molecular oxygen

[2,1-a]phenalen-1(12H)-one (hipp).
