5-Azadibenzo[a,g]corannulene, the first azacorannulene with a nitrogen on the rim, has been synthesized in seven steps from 4-bromoisoquinoline. The strained pyridine ring opens thermally to a polycyclic aromatic nitrile and hydrolytically to an amino aldehyde with the same polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon framework.
