Synthesis of novel polyaromatic hydrocarbons for electronica applications
This report describes research towards the project ‘Synthesis of novel polyaromatic hydrocarbons for electronic applications’. Being an initial piece of research, there are a small number of PAHs that have been synthesised. However a lot of optimisation have been carried out in order to devise a good route for synthesising more. The synthesis mainly consisted of three reactions; A Sonogashira coupling which was unchanged from the literature, a Suzuki coupling which in some cases worked well using a known procedure but in others required optimising, and a base catalysed cyclisation of which there are only a small number of known examples, and required a great deal of optimisation which is described.

Abstract

This report describes research towards the project ‘Synthesis of novel polyaromatic hydrocarbons for electronic applications’. Being an initial piece of research, there are a small number of PAHs that have been synthesised. However a lot of optimisation have been carried out in order to devise a good route for synthesising more. The synthesis mainly consisted of three reactions; A Sonogashira coupling which was unchanged from the literature, a Suzuki coupling which in some cases worked well using a known procedure but in others required optimising, and a base catalysed cyclisation of which there are only a small number of known examples, and required a great deal of optimisation which is described.
