I did a lab where I had to prepare that compound and I'm trying to calculate the percent yield but I can't find the MW of that? Anyone know it?

Do you know the structure?

If I had to guess

(MW anthracene - MW hydrogen*4) + (MW succinic anhydride - MW hydrogen*2)

This is the structure:



It's created by adding anthracene (the 3 rings) with maleic anhydride.

(# Carbons)*(MW Carbon) + (# Hydrogens)*(MW Hydrogen) + (# Oxygens)*(MW Oxygen)

Or draw it in chemsketch and it does it for you.
