Herein, we describe the synthesis of 3-[N-(4-methoxybenzyl)amino]benzo[de]anthracen-7-one via a two-step procedure including 3-aminobenzanthrone condensation with anisaldehyde and following reduction of obtained imine to appropriate amine by sodium borohydride. The structure of the synthesized compounds was established by elemental analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectrometry (EI-MS), and infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The title compound was analyzed by thermal gravimetric analysis, UV/vis, and fluorescence spectroscopy. View Full-Text
