Bromination of Acridine

Graham S. Chandler, Wolfgang H.F. Sasse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The quantitative determination of the products of bromination of acridine in concentrated sulfuric acid and glacial acetic acid is described. In both cases, the only monobromo products were the 2- and 4-substituted compounds. With sulfuric acid, the 4-isomer predominates whereas in acetic acid, the 2-isomer is predominant. This work expands substantially on the tiny amount of previous work on halogenation of dibenzo-annelated pyridines.
