L, 3-Dihydroxy-2-phenylanthraquinone has been synthesized by reaction of 2-phenylacetyl-1, 4- naphthoquinone with 1, 1-dimethoxyethene and subsequent intramolecular condensation. It has also been obtained by Diels-Alder cycloaddition. Some arylated benzo- and naphtho-quinones have been synthesized by the Meerwein reaction.
