Deca-heterosubstituted corannulenes Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The Cu (I)-catalyzed Ullmann condensation reaction between aliphatic alcohols and sym- pentachlorocorannulene provides a convenient entry to 1, 3, 5, 7, 9- pentaalkoxycorannulenes. The latter are easily converted to novel deca-heterosubstituted derivatives, such as 1, 3, 5, 7, 9-penta-X-2, 4, 6, 8, 10-penta-Y-corannulenes by electrophilic aromatic substitution.
