abstract
Organic photochemistry is a unique discipline which allows for reactivity that is unavailable in the ground state. 1,2-Dialkoxy anthraquinones exhibit photochemistry which releases an alkane functional group from the 1-position and forms a dimer from the anthraquinone moiety. This reactivity is observed for a plethora of 1,2-dialkoxy-9,10-anthraquinones; however different products are observed for 1-ethoxy and 1-benzyloxy substituted anthraquinones which instead produce a 1-keto derivative.
