Abstract

The synthesis of unsymmetric functionalized pentacenes from 1,4-anthraquinones and functionalized isobenzofurans, which were prepared by transformation via C-H bond activation, was successfully accomplished. Examples of the synthesis of pentacenes with functional groups at the 5-position are still rare. These obtained functionalized pentacenes are highly soluble in hexane, toluene, and THF.
