Precursors of linear polyacenes: entry door to new semi-conductor materials

Posted by Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ)Responsive · Patents for licensing · Spain

Summary of the technology

A new strategy for the preparation of precursors of linear acenes has been developed. The developed acene precursors are hydrogenated acenes and are stable upon storage. They can be prepared in several synthetic steps using two catalytic key preparation steps. The precursors can be deposited onto surfaces and submitted to annealing to generate the linear acene. This strategy afforded the first-ever preparation of undecacene.
