Synthesis of Dehydrobenzoannulenes for Incorporation into Multi-Component Devices

Institution

Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

Annulenes possess properties that may play an important role in the development of electronic devices. The goal of this research was to synthesize annulenes that contained either electron-donating or -withdrawing groups as well as a site for the attachment of the annulene to other compounds. Thus, the annulene could be linked to a plethora of electronically complementary species. These larger systems could exhibit changes in their spectroscopic or electrochemical properties in the presence of various ions which may make them useful as sensors or in other materials applications. Progress toward the synthesis of these functionalized annulenes is presented.
