A synthesis of multiply arylated naphthalenes and anthracenes with eight different substituents has been accomplished. The key intermediate is a tetraarylthiophene S-oxides, which is synthesized by a protocol involving sequential C–H arylation and cross-coupling from 3-methoxythiophene, followed by oxidation of the sulfur atom. The resulting tetraarylthiophene S-oxide can be converted to a tetraaryl benzynes or naphthalynes, then merged via a [4+2] cycloaddition reaction with another tetraarylthiophene S-oxide, resulting in the programmed synthesis of octaarylnaphthalene and octaarylanthracene.
