New method for the synthesis of a highly-conjugated acene material and its application in Perovskite solar cells†
Kita-type coupling and Scholl-type oxidative cyclodehydrogenation to afford acene from binaphthalene and mesitylene is as an effective alternative to the reported approaches. Acene may enable the broader application of small organic molecules in electronic and optical devices. Therefore, this novel synthetic method would promote the development of acene chemistry.
