Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cycloaromatization chemistry has the potential to become an important paradigm for the formation of graphic oligomers. Iterative cycloaromatization is a viable method for the preparation of linearly-fused aromatic systems. As long as solubility is maintained, the cycloaromatized products are formed in good yield, and the resulting halogenated acene oligomers can be carried-on to more extended systems.
