Abstract

Direct cyanation, using the heterogeneous Friedel-Crafts system cyanogen bromide/aluminium chloride, has given good yields of the following carbonitriles: anthracene-9-, chrysene-6-, 2-methyl-1-naphtho-, 4-methyl-1-naphtho-, 1-naphtho-, phenanthrene-9-, 2,4,6-trimethylbenzo-, triphenylene-1- and triphenylene-2-carbonitriles.
