Extended Anthracenes and Their Use as Dienes in Diels-Alder Reactions
Published: 03 November 2014 by MDPI in The 18th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: 9-Anthranylcarbaldehydes were converted to alkyl 9-anthranylacrylates and 9-phenacylethenylanthracenes. Alkyl 9-anthranylacrylates are brominated to alkyl 9-bromoanthran-10-ylacrylate. Suzuki-reactions with arylboronic lead to alkyl 9,10-arylanthranylacrylates. The alkyl 9-anthranylacrylates and 9-phenacylethenylanthracenes were subjected to cycloaddition reactions to give the respective cycloadducts.
