Anthraquinone and anthrone series

5-Nitrobenzanthrone has been synthesized by nitration of 4-acetamidobenzanthrone, hydrolysis to 4-amino-5-nitrobenzanthrone and subsequent deamination. The adjacent orientation of the amino and nitro groups was shown by reduction to a diamine, which formed a quinoxaline with phenanthraquinone and an imidazole with benzoyl chloride. Reduction of 5-nitrobenzanthrone gave 5-aminobenzanthrone which was converted to 5-chlorobenzanthrone. Oxidation of 5-chlorobenzanthrone gave 3-chloroanthraquinone-1-carboxylic acid, identical with the acid prepared from 1-amino-3-chloroanthraquinone.
