Cascade annulative π-extension for the rapid construction of carbazole based polyaromatic hydrocarbons†
A Brønsted acid catalyzed cascade benzannulation strategy for the one-pot synthesis of densely populated poly-aryl benzo[a]carbazole architectures is disclosed from easily affordable fundamental commodities. The efficacy of this technique was further validated via the concise synthesis of structurally unique carbazole based poly-aromatic hydrocarbons. Furthermore, the photo-physical properties of the synthesized compounds are thoroughly investigated.
