Give me five! The title compounds were isolated from the acid-catalyzed reaction of a C59N precursor with electron-rich aromatic compounds. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction on two compounds reveals characteristic packing motifs; the triaryldihydro derivative has a pseudo-stacked arrangement (C violet/yellow, N blue, O red, H white).
