Synthesis of 9,10-diacetoxyanthracene

Preparation of 9,10-diacetoxyanthracene

One part of anthraquinone is boiled for a short time with 10 to 15 parts of acetic anhydride, 2, parts of anhydrous sodium acetate, and 3 parts of zinc dust. The solution after cooling is filtered, the residue dissolved in a little boiling glacial acetic acid, filtered hot, and the filtrate allowed to cool. The 9,10-diacetoxyanthracene is collected, and recrystallised several times from glacial acetic acid. It forms colourless needles which melt at 260° C.
