1,1-Difluoronaphthalen-2(1H)-ones were used as building blocks for synthesis of functionalized fluorinated tetraphenones via Diels-Alder reaction. Two effective methods of tetraphenone reductive aromatization were proposed. Fully aromatic stable fluorinated tetraphene derivative with high solubility and HOMO-LUMO gap of 3.08 eV was obtained.
