Controlling the columnar orientation of C3-symmetric "superbenzenes" through alternating polar/apolar substitutents.


Hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC, “superbenzene”) and its hexaphenyl derivatives have continually attracted attention because of their large nanographene-type conjugated p systems, which make for appealing applications in electronic devices. Control over supramolecular organization in the solid state and of the interfaces between substrates and electrodes… (More)
