Molecular electronics: A hextuple Friedel–Crafts carbamylation is reported in the synthesis of the electroactive decacyclene triimides (see picture). These triimides self-assemble into different nanostructures through modification of the alkyl substituents and are promising n-type materials for organic semiconducting devices.
