Abstract

The first synthesis of nitrogen-bridged terthiophenes (NBTTs) has been achieved by a tandem Buchwald-Hartwig coupling of 3,3′,3″,4′- tetrabromo-2,2′:5′,2″-terthiophene. Several NBTT derivatives bearing aryl or alkyl moieties on the N-atoms could be synthesized. Their fundamental electrochemical characteristics and HOMO-LUMO levels were found to be influenced by the substituents on the N-atoms.
