Anthraquinones represent privileged chemical structures endowed with a very important and wide range of biological activities, from antibiotic to anticancer. They also find frequent applications in materials sciences. Recently, Dr. G. Satyanarayana from the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad, Kandi (India) reported a new and direct approach to functionalized anthraquinones.
