We report the syntheses and properties of thienopyrrole based unsymmetrical and extended heteroacenes, which are isoelectronic with heptacene (30π) and nonacene (38π), respectively. Optical and electrochemical properties of these seven and nine rings fused systems are studied. The optoelectronic properties of the syn and anti-isomers of the unsymmetrical heteroacenes are also compared. The influence of the position of the heteroatoms in the fused corona, upon the optical and electrochemical properties, is rationalized based on the contributions from the benzenoid vs. quinonoid-type structures of these molecules.
