Hydrocarbons Containing Three Linearly Annellated Benzene Rings
In 1832, Dumas and Laurent found in the high-boiling fractions of coal-tar a hydrocarbon which they called “paranaphthalene”. Laurent then investigated this hydrocarbon more closely and called it anthracene. Anthracene was re-investigated more thoroughly by Fritsche in 1857; he considered it to be a mixture of two compounds, “photene” and “photene”.
