2,6-bis(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)anthracene (D1)
2,6‐Dibromoanthracene (2.00 g, 6.46 mmol) 1, bis(pinacolato)diboron (4.16 g, 16.16 mmol), PdCl2 (dppf) (0.164 g, 26.38 mmol), and potassium acetate (KOAc) (2.5 g, 26.38 mmol) were added to a Schlenk flask and kept under vacuum for 10 min. Under an argon flow, anhydrous 1, 4‐dioxane (40 mL) was added to the resulting mixture, and the mixture was stirred at room temperature for 30 min, heated at 80 °C, and further stirred for 20 h. The resulting mixture was quenched by adding water and extracted with ethyl acetate (100 mL). The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over anhydrous Na2SO4, and filtered. After removing the solvent, a dark red solid was obtained,

After stirring for 1 h, 2-isopropoxy-4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolane was added to the solution. The reaction mixture was warmed to room temperature and stirred for 24 h. The resulting mixture was quenched by adding water and extracted with methylene chloride. The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over anhydrous Na2SO4, and filtered. After removing the solvent, the crude product was purified by silica gel chromatography by using hexane/CH2Cl2 (4:1) as the eluent to afford the title compound as yellow solid (1.23 g, 76%). 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3): δ 8.55 (s, 2H), 8.44 (s, 2H), 8.01 (dd, 2H), 7.76 (dd, 2H), 1.39 (s, …show more content…
The resulting mixture was stirred in the dark for 3 days at room temperature and then poured into aqueous NaOH solution (10 g in 200 mL). The aqueous phase was extracted with CH2Cl2; the combined organic extracts were washed with brine and concentrated under reduced pressure to afford a crude solid that was purified by column chromatography [SiO2, hexane/CH2Cl2, 9:1 (v/v)] to afford a white solid (2.2 g, 79%). 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3): δ 4.13 (t, J = 9 Hz, 4H), 1.89–1.80 (m, 4H), 1.53–1.29 (m, 20H), 0.88 (t, J = 6.6 Hz,
