Extended germa[N]pericyclynes: synthesis and characterization

Author affiliations


We herein describe the syntheses and characterization of extended germa[N]pericyclynes, which are macrocycles composed of germanium–butadiyne units. The obtained novel extended germa[4]–[8]pericyclynes were characterized by X-ray crystallography, UV-Vis spectroscopy, fluorescence and phosphorescence emission spectroscopy, and cyclic voltammetry, and exhibited characteristic absorptions and emissions. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations suggested smaller HOMO–LUMO gap energy compared to that of general germapericyclynes.
