Synthesis of distorted nanographenes containing seven- and eight-membered carbocycles

Author affiliations

Abstract

This feature article focuses on the bottom-up approaches (solution-phase) based on organic synthesis for the preparation of saddle-shaped distorted polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). We summarise the recent progress on the synthetic strategies followed to obtain well-defined nanographenes containing heptagonal and octagonal carbocycles, highlighting the novel strategy developed by our group together with our recent contributions in the area of distorted aromatics. The presence of seven- or eight-membered rings induces a saddle-shape curvature in the planar network pushing the structure out of the plane, which influences the physical properties exhibited. Some brief details on the optical and electronic properties of these curved nanostructures are also discussed.
