The 9,10-bis(3-aryl-2-naphthyl)anthracenes 3 were prepared by the benzannulation reaction of 2-(phenylethynyl)benzaldehyde (1) and the corresponding 9,10-bis(arylethynyl)anthracenes 2 in the presence of Cu or Re catalyst and trichloroacetic acid. The photophysical properties of 3 in solutions were investigated.
