Abstract

Herein we report a facile three-step synthesis of [8]-, [9]-, and [12]cyclo-1,4-naphthalene nanorings as the conjugated segments of carbon nanotubes. The nanorings were created via a platinum-mediated assembly of 1,4-naphthalene-based units and subsequent reductive elimination in the presence of triphenylphosphine. This present platinum-mediated approach is attractive because of its simple three-step process to produce the targeted nanorings in a high overall yield. In addition, their photophysical properties were studied using UV-vis spectroscopy and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, which further revealed their unique size-dependent properties.
