Abstract

Directions are given for the four-step synthesis of dibenzo(g,p)chrysene from fluoren-9-one. The intermediate products are 9,9'-bifluorene-9,9'-diol, spiro[fluorene-9,9'-(l0'H)-phenanthren]- 10'-one, and spiro[fluorene-9,9'-(l0'H)-phenanthren]- 10'-01 in that order. The experiment is designed to illustrate carbonium ion rearrangements and reductions as well as the properties of some interesting compounds to the experienced undergraduate student.
