This review presents possible routs of preparation of acridine derivatives con-taining saturated rings
that can be obtained both as a result of traditional organic synthesis based on cyclization and condensation reactions
and whenever available by partial or total catalytic (heterogeneous or homogeneous) hydrogenation of appropriate
acridine derivatives. Methods of preparations of acridine derivatives bearing saturated rings are presented
and discussed. The influence of resonance stabilisation energies of N-heteroaromatic and partly saturated
N-heteroaromatic structures on hydrogenation susceptibility is discussed in relation to other aspects influencing
saturation N-heteroaromatic versus carbocyclic rings.
Keywords: Acridine, acridine derivatives, resonance stabilisation energy, condensation reactions, catalytic heterogeneous hydrogenation,
catalytic homogeneous hydrogenation, selective hydrogenation.
