50_37i/2011Inside Cover: Stable Hexacenes through Nitrogen Substitution (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 37/2011)

Using nitrogen atoms in the perimeter of a hexacene will make the compound considerably more stable than its all-hydrocarbon relative. In their Communication on page 8588 ff, U. H. F. Bunz and co-workers report the synthesis of a tetraaza- and a hexaazahexacene using a palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of a suitable diaminoanthracene or diaminophenazine derivative with dichloroquinoxaline. The obtained materials are potentially attractive for applications in organic electronics.
