Fluorescence of a chiral pentaphene derivative derived from the hexabenzocoronene Motif

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new fluorescent pentaphene derivative is presented that differs from hexabenzocoronene (HBC) by one carbon atom in the basal plane skeleton. A 500% increased fluorescence quantum yield is measured compared to the HBC derivative. The pentaphene compound, obtained by a modified Scholl oxidation, is also emissive in the solid-state, due to the packing motif in the crystal.
