The structure of the cyclooctatetraene dimer of m. p. 53° has been a matter of controversy. Structure I was proposed by Jones(3} and could be reconciled with a proposed mechanism of conversion of the dimer to bullvalene(4). Schröder(5) has proposed structure II because the material afforded the all cis-cyclobutanetetracarboxylic acid on ozonolysis and peracid oxidation. However, there is still a possibility that I could yield ciclobutanetetracarboxilic acid on oxidation by way of its valence tautomer III.
