Six cyclic stilbene derivatives with hindered free rotation around the C(vinyl)–C(phenyl) single bond were synthesized by McMurry coupling. The torsion angles around the double and the single bond, and the C=C bond length were obtained for many of the compounds from their solid-state structures. The photochemical isomerization was subsequently investigated for all derivatives under various conditions. The parent 1-(1-tetralinylidene)tetralin underwent efficient oxidative electrocyclization. The 2,2,2',2'-tetramethylated analogue was resistant towards photooxidation, however, its cis-isomer thermally reisomerized to the more stable trans-isomer.
