Abstract

Lateral thinking: Molecular solids with tunable color and excellent emission efficiencies or increased electron affinities have been obtained by lateral boryl substitution on a π-delocalized framework (see picture, D=donor group, B=boryl group). This approach gives rise to a new design principle for organic optoelectronic materials.
