Abstract

WU, Li Qiang et al. Silica supported perchloric acid: an efficient catalyst for the synthesis of 14-aryl-14H-dibenzo[a,i]xanthene-8,13-diones. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.5, pp. 941-945. ISSN 0103-5053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532010000500025.

The condensation of β-naphthol with aromatic aldehydes and 2-hydroxynaphthalene-1,4-dione in presence of silica supported perchloric acid under solvent-free media to afford the corresponding 14-aryl-14H-dibenzo[a,i]xanthene-8,13-diones in excellent yields and short reaction times is described. The reaction work-up is very simple and the catalyst can be easily separated from the reaction mixture and reused several times in subsequent reactions.

Keywords : dibenzo[a,i]xanthenes; β-naphthol; 2-hydroxynaphthalene-1; 4-dione; silica supported perchloric acid; solvent-free.
