Abstract: Abstract 9,10‐Dibromoanthracene (2) obtained from anthracene by bromination was reacted with cuprous cyanide in refluxing DMF to obtain 9,10‐dicyanoanthracene (3). The key intermediate (3) was condensed with orthophenylenediamine (4a), ortho‐aminophenol (4b) and dicyanodiamine (6) to give 9,10‐bis(benzimidazol‐2‐yl)anthracene (5a), 9,10‐bis(benzoxazol‐2‐yl)anthracene (5b) and 9,10‐bis(4,6‐diamino‐S‐triazin‐2‐yl)anthracene (5c), respectively. The spectral properties of 5a‐5c were studied. These compounds, when…
