Abstract

original image

The synthesis of benzoperylene and coronene compounds usually requires time consuming, thermally activated reactions that involve co-reactants and/or catalysts. In their Full Paper on page 5289 ff., A. Hirsch et al. describe a new synthetic approach to benzoperylenes and coronenes by a photo-induced electrocyclic reaction. The transformation of the corresponding dendronized bay-functionalized perylene diimides into benzoperylene and coronene compounds, as well as the aggregation behavior of each derivative, are investigated by absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy.
