BN-substituted diphenylacetylene: a basic model for conjugated π-systems containing the BN bond pair

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the synthesis, structural characterization, and optoelectronic properties of BN-Tolan 1 and Bis-BN-Tolan 2, one of the simplest conjugated systems containing the BN bond pair. BN-tolans 1 and 2 display absorption and emission properties that are distinct from their carbonaceous analogue, tolan. In addition, Bis-BN-Tolan 2 exhibits unique N–H⋯π(C≡C) hydrogen bonding in the solid state.
