Abstract : This report outlines the work being carried at the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg aimed at the synthesis of polyhalogenated cage molecules, their isolation, characterization, and assessment as potential pre-cursors to 'high density' materials. The 'cage systems studied are adamantane (C10H16), diamantane (C14H20), and norbornadiene-dimer (C14H16) (NBD). CONTENTS. (I) Photobromination of 1,3,5,7-tetrabromoadamantane (AdBr4). (II)Photochlorination of AdBr4. (III) Photochlorination of adamantane and 1,3,5,7-tetrachloroadamantane. (AdCl4). (IV) Chlorination of diamantane. (V) Chlorination of NBD. (VI) Ionic bromination of diamantane. Key words: Photochemical reactions, Synthesis(Chemistry), Cage compounds, Cyclic compounds, High energy, Dimers, Chlorination. (JES)
