Abstract

(Matrix Presented) A series of thiophene-based homologues with an aromatic core surrounded by terthiophene "arms" with acetylene linkages has been synthesized by using Sonogashira coupling methods. The homologues were investigated spectroscopically in solution and in the solid state. They display extended π-conjugation through the aromatic core that affects the strong emission and redox properties.
