Discrete, soluble covalent organic boronate ester rectangles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The facile self-assembly of nanoscale boronate ester rectangles from linear bis-catechols and 1,4-benzene diboronic acid is described. Spectroscopic and computational analyses reveal the influence of extended π-conjugation on the rectangles' absorption and fluorescence properties. The rectangles represent a new class of discrete, organic soluble covalent organic polygons.
