Unexpected one-pot method to synthesize spiro[fluorene-9,9'-xanthene] building blocks for blue-light-emitting materials.
ABSTRACT [reaction: see text] An unexpected one-pot synthetic approach toward spiro[fluorene-9,9'-xanthene] (SFX) under excessive MeSO(3)H conditions has been developed. The key step involves a thermodynamically controlled cyclization reaction. Blue-light-emitting materials based on SFX building blocks that exhibit high thermal stability have also been synthesized.

ABSTRACT: In the title compound, C(41)H(64)B(2)O(4), one of the five-membered rings has an envelope conformation, while the other, which may be affected by disorder, is nearly coplanar with the fluorene ring. The dihedral angle between the fluorene and dioxaborolane rings is 2.29 (1)°. Two of the methyl groups are disordered over two orientations in 0.67 (3):0.33 (3) and 0.568 (10):0.432 (10) ratios.Acta Crystallographica Section E Structure Reports Online 12/2011; 67(Pt 12):o3449. · 0.35 Impact Factor
