    • Abstract


      The absorption spectra of dibenzanthrone, 16: 17-dihydroxydibenzanthrone, 16: 17-and 3: 12-dimethoxydibenzanthrone have been determined ino-chlorophenol. The bathochromic shift of the dibenzanthrone spectrum on substitution of two methoxyl groups in the 16: 17-positions of dibenzanthrone is ascribed to the over-riding tendency of the dibenzanthrone ring system to remain planar and hence force the methoxyl groups also to be coplanar with the ring system.

      The absorption spectra of 3:3′- and 4:4′-dibenzanthronyls have been reported and discussed.
