Abstract

Synthesis of 5,7-phenylquinoline from the Skraup reaction of m-terphenyl-amine and glycerol in the presence of acid is reported. Further reaction of 5,7-diphenyl-quinoline with phenyl lithium prepared in situ led to the formation of 2,5,7-triphenyl-quinoline. All of the products and their intermediates were characterized and the UV-Vis and photo-luminescence (PL) spectra of m-terphenylamine, 5,7-diphenylquinoline and 2,5,7-triphenylquinoline are also reported.
Keywords: Synthesis; m-terphenylamine; Skraup reaction; 5; 7-diphenylquinoline; 2; 5; 7-triphenylquinoline. Synthesis; m-terphenylamine; Skraup reaction; 5; 7-diphenylquinoline; 2; 5; 7-triphenylquinoline.
