Functionalized higher acenes: Hexacene and heptacene

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

413 Scopus citations


We have extended our functionalization strategy for pentacene to the higher acenes hexacene and heptacene. Provided a large enough alkyne substituent is used, these large aromatic rods are both stable and soluble and can be characterized spectroscopically as well as by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
