Incorporation of 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) moieties into the acene backbone has been successfully achieved and two heptacene-TCNQ derivatives and one nonacene-TCNQ derivative have been synthesized and well characterized. Two TCNQ moieties have been embedded into heptacene and nonacene backbones for the first time. All the three compounds have(More)
Two 7,14-disubstituted-5,12-dithiapentacenes (1 and 2) with quinoidal conjugation were synthesized. Their ground-state quinoidal structures were proven by X-ray crystallographic analysis. They showed very different electronic and optical properties from those of the corresponding pentacene derivatives with diene conjugation, and their stability was(More)
Two soluble and stable dianthraceno[a,e]pentalenes with two (DAP1) and six (DAP2) phenyl substituents were synthesized. Both compounds possess a small energy band gap and show amphoteric redox behaviour due to intramolecular donor-accepter interactions. X-ray crystallographic analysis revealed that DAP2 has a closely packed structure with multi-dimensional(More)
Incorporation of electron-deficient tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) into electron-rich thiophene-fused heptacene was successfully achieved for the purpose of stabilizing longer acenes and generating new n-type organic semiconductors. The heptacene-TCNQ derivative 1 was found to have good stability and an expected electron transporting property. Electron(More)
LiNi0.6Co0.2Mn0.2O2 cathode material has been surface-modified by coating with ultrathin TiO2via atomic layer deposition (ALD) technology to improve the electrochemical performance of LiNi0.6Co0.2Mn0.2O2 cathodes for lithium ion batteries. Within the cut-off voltage of 2.5-4.3 V, the coated sample delivers an initial discharge capacity of 187.7 mA h g(-1)(More)
Three soluble and stable thienoacene-fused pentalene derivatives (1-3) with different π-conjugation lengths were synthesized. X-ray crystallographic analysis and density functional theory (DFT) calculations revealed their unique geometric and electronic structures due to the interaction between the aromatic thienoacene units and antiaromatic pentalene(More)
Owing to the extraordinary properties, organic micro/nanocrystals are important building blocks for future low-cost and high-performance organic electronic devices. However, integrated device application of the organic micro/nanocrystals is hampered by the difficulty in high-throughput, high-precision patterning of the micro/nanocrystals. In this study, the(More)
Acene-based materials have promising applications for organic electronics but the major constrain comes from their poor stability. Herein a new strategy to stabilize reactive acenes, by fusion of an anti-aromatic pentalene unit onto the zigzag edges of two acene units to form a Z-shaped acene dimer, is introduced. The Z-shaped acene dimers are extremely(More)
Several bisacenaphthopyrazinoquinoxaline (BAPQ) based derivatives 1-3 were synthesized by condensation between the acenaphthenequinones and 1,2,4,5-tetraaminobenzene tetrahydrochloride. Their optical, electrochemical and self-assembling properties are tuned by different substituents. Among them, compound 3 possesses a homogeneously distributed low-lying(More)
