Abstract

α,α′-Bis(trifluoromethyl)-9, 10-anthracenedimethanol was prepared by a one pot stereoselective double reduction in good yield and excellent enantiomeric excess. We examined the association with ortho- and meta-benzenedimethanol showing bidentate complexes stable enough to be studied by low temperature NMR. Molecular modeling helped us to propose an association complex. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
