Abstract

Abstract Anthracene derivative 4 annelated with four bicyclo[2.2.2]octene (BCO) units was newly synthesized by the Diels-Alder reaction of BCO dimer with p-benzoquinone as a key reaction, and its electronic properties were investigated. The remarkable effect of BCO annelation was observed in its redox behavior, and 4 was readily transformed into stable cation radical 4 +• and dication 4 2+.
