Synthesis of pentacene-, tetracene- and anthracene bisimides using double-cyclization reaction mediated by bismuth(III) triflate

Abstract

Novel bisimide-fused acenes were synthesized viabismuth triflate mediated double-cyclization reaction of acid chlorides and isocyanates. Their optical and electrical properties revealed significantly smaller HOMO–LUMO gaps compared with those of their parent acenes. Fabricated OFET based on tetracene bisimide showed n-type OFET outputs.
