Spiro-fused bis-hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene


A spiro-fused hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene dimer was synthesized, and its physicochemical properties were studied by UV-Vis absorption and emission spectroscopy as well as cyclic voltammetry. Chemical oxidation of SB-HBC afforded its radical cation and dication derivatives, which could be reversibly reduced to the neutral state.
