Some phenols with an olefinic side chain have been electrolyzed under various conditions to afford both intramolecular [5 + 1]cycloaddition products and spiro compounds depending on solvent, substituents on the olefinic double bond and others. These rection products are regarded as a synthetic key intermediate of bioactive terpenoids.
