Via Sonogashira cross-coupling with different alkynes, 1,6 and 1,7 perylene diimides (PDIs) and perylene tetracarboxylic dianhydrides (PTCDs) were synthesized from the corresponding regioisomeric mixture of 1,6/1,7-dibromo precursors. Both bulky triphenyl propyne (TPP) groups and nonbulky hexyl groups allow for facile chromatographic separation. The optical(More)
We have developed an efficient synthetic platform for the preparation of a new class of high performance thermosets based on the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of a bifunctional sydnone with a trifunctional alkyne. These processable materials possess outstanding thermal stability, with Td5% of 520 °C and a weight loss of <0.1% per day at 225 °C (both in air).(More)
