9-Anthraldehyde is used to prepare asymmetrical tridentate Schiff base ligands, 2-(9-anthrylmethyl-ideneamino)-4-methyl-phenol and functionalized ligand like 2-(anthracen-9-ylidene)-4,5-bis(diphenylphosphino)-4-cyclopentene-1,3-dione through Knoevenangel condensation with the diphosphine ligand 4,5-bis(diphenylphosphino)-4-cyclopentene-1,3-dione. It is also used as an intermediate for dyes, pigment, active pharmaceutical ingredients and other organic compounds. Further, it is involved in the Diels Alder reaction with benzenediazonium-2-carboxylate.
1-Formyltriptycene, prepared by Diels-Alder reaction of 9-anthraldehyde with benzyne, is the key intermediate for a series of triptycene derivatives which undergo a variety of skeletal transformations on flash vacuum pyrolysis or photolysis: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 563 (1996).
