The purpose of this project was the synthesis of bis-acenaphth[l,2-a] acenaphthene. The synthetic route attempted was the preparation of 1,8-naphthalylnaphthalene by reacting 1,8-dilithionaphthalene with acenaphthene- quinone followed by oxidation with lead tetracetate and treatment of the diketone with 1,8-dilithionaphthalene to give the product.
