Abstract

In the present Short Note, we report a synthesis for the title compound, N-(9,10-dioxo-9,10-dihydroanthracen-1-yl)-2-methylbenzamide by reacting 2-methylbenzoyl chloride (or 2-methylbenzoic acid) with 1-aminoanthraquinone. The synthesized target compound was fully characterized by various spectroscopic methods (1H-NMR,13C-NMR, IR, GC-MS). The importance of this compound lies its possession of an N,O-bidentate directing group, potentially suitable for metal-catalyzed C-H bond functionalization reactions.
