2-(3-Formylphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline was prepared by a previously published method [1]. A mixture of 2-(3-formylphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (0.15 g, 0.46 mmol), 9,10-phenanthrenequinone (0.104 g, 0.50 mmol), ammonium acetate (0.713 g, 9.3 mmol) and glacial acetic acid (20 cm3) was refluxed for about 2 h. The cooled solution was filtered, diluted with water (ca, 60 cm3) and neutralized with concentrated aqueous ammonia. The crude product was collected and purified by column chromatography on alumina with ethanol-toluene (1:4 v/v) as eluent to give the title compound as pale yellow powders. Yield 0.183 g, 77.5%.
