Synthesis method

Obtained from the oxidation of acenaphthene with sodium dichromate: In a stainless steel reactor with a cooling jacket, add acenaphthene; glacial acetic acid and ceric acetate, stir, add a measured amount of sodium dichromate dihydrate within 2 hours, and keep the temperature at 40℃. Stirring was then continued at room temperature for 8 h. Dilute with cold water, filter, and wash with water until there is no acidity. Boil the solid and 10% sodium carbonate solution on a steam bath for 30 minutes, filter and wash. Then extract the solid with sodium bisulfite (4% solution) at 80°C for 30 minutes, then add filter aid diatomaceous earth and activated carbon, and then filter. Repeat the extraction once, combine the filtrate and acidify it with concentrated hydrochloric acid at 80°C with constant stirring until the Congo red test paper turns blue, and continue to keep stirring at 80°C for 1 hour. Acenaphthyroquinone is separated out as bright yellow crystals, filtered, and washed with water to remove the acidity, to obtain acenaphthyroquinone with a yield of 38%-60%. Melting point 256-260℃. Recrystallize with o-dichlorobenzene, and after washing the crystal with methanol, the melting point can reach 256-260°C. It can also be obtained by using acenaphthene as a raw material, reacting with sodium nitrite in a hydrochloric acid solution to form acenaphthene ketone oxime, and then reacting with formaldehyde in sulfuric acid.
