Abstract

A series of substituted [6]phenacenes were synthesized through the Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and intramolecular double cyclization, using a polyhalobenzene and two different alkenylboronates. This methodology provides a direct route to unsymmetrical [6]phenacenes. The physicochemical properties of four [6]phenacenes were evaluated using UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopies as well as cyclic voltammetry.
