Preparation of 9,10-dibromoanthracene

50 g. of anthracene and 500 ml of carbon tetrachloride are placed in a flask with mechanical agitator and reflux condenser affixed. 95 g. of bromine are slowly added with vigorous agitation, and the 9,10-dibromoanthracene separates. The hydrogen bromide evolved is passed from the top of the condenser to a fume duct or is absorbed in water. The addition of bromine takes about 30 minutes. The mixture is then gently raised to boiling and maintained there for 1 hour. It is cooled, allowed to stand for some hours, and the 9,10-dibromoanthracene filtered off, washed with carbon tetrachloride, and dried. A further yield is obtained by concentrating the mother liquor. The product is crystallised from carbon tetrachloride or from toluene yielding -85% theoretical (70 g). Yellow needles; m.p. 217 ° C.
