A series of 3-substituted Indan-1-ones has been prepared, and the structures of these compounds have been unequivocally established. Bimolecular reduction of these ketones, followed by dehydration, gave either bi-indenyl or trans-indanylideneindene derivatives. The mechanisms of these reactions are discussed.
