Abstract

The purpose of this project was the synthesis of tris(l-B, 8-B'­naphthyl)diboron. The synthesis route attempted was the preparation of 1,8-dibromonaphthalene from 1,8-diaminonaphthalene by tetrazotization followed by a Sandmeyer reaction, treatment of the dibromo compound with n-butyllithium to give 1,8-dilithionaphthalene and subsequent addition of boron trifluoride to give the product.
