It has been demonstrated that aquasonolysis of cyclohexadienes generates moderate quantities of benzene.[‌11‌] Aquasonolysis of cyclohexa-1,4-diene affords 24% benzene (by GC analysis) after 90 minutes, whereas sonication of a solution of cyclohexa-1,3-diene generates only ca. 6% benzene; cyclohexene is virtually unresponsive to sonication. Longer sonication times result in decreased yields of benzene.
