1,4-Benzadithiin 1,1,4,4-tetraoxide undergoes the Diels-Alder reaction with a series of dienes under mild conditions to provide the corresponding adducts in excellent yields. The adduct with anthracene is desulfonated to afford dibenzobarrelene, thus showing that the title compound functions as an acetylene equivalent.
