Lots of potential: A trifluoromethylated corannulene, C5-C20H5(CF3)5, has been prepared and characterized spectroscopically and by X-ray crystallography. The structure exhibits a highly ordered bowl stacking that is unusual for corannulenes with acyclic substituents. The first reduction of C5-C20H5(CF3)5 is anodically shifted by 0.95 V, making it the strongest corannulene-based electron acceptor to date.
