A method to determine simultaneously fluorene and anthracene in aqueous solution by synchronous fluorescence spectrometry has been studied. The emission characteristics and optimum wavelength interval (${\Delta}{\lambda}$) for synchronous spectra of fluorene and anthracene in aqueous solution were investigated. The optimum wavelength interval (${\Delta}{\lambda}$) was found to be 50 nm. The calibration curve for fluorene and anthracene in the synthetic mixture solution of both compounds was linear over the range from $5.0{\times}10^{-8}M$ to $1.0{\times}10^{-3}M$ and from $5.0{\times}10^{-8}M$ to $1.0{\times}10^{-3}M$ for fluorene and anthracene, respectively. The detection limit was $3.0{\times}10^{-9}M$ and $7.0{\times}10^{-9}M$, for fluorene and anthracene, respectively under the optimal wavelength interval.
