Application of Ring Closing Metathesis Towards Functionalized 1,4-dihydro-9,10-anthraquinones and Anthraquinones Using Grubbs’ Catalyst
Published: 01 November 2004 by MDPI in The 8th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: A general and straightforward synthesis of anthraquinones was developed, in which diallylation of 1,4-naphthoquinones, followed by Ring Closing Metathesis (RCM) of the resulting diallylnaphthoquinones with Grubbs’ catalyst and subsequent dehydrogenation using Pd/C afforded the desired anthraquinones with regio control of substituents and in good yields.
