Monothiatruxene : a new versatile core for functional materials.

Maciejczyk, Michal R. and Williams, J. A. Gareth and Robertson, Neil and Pietraszkiewicz, Marek (2017) 'Monothiatruxene : a new versatile core for functional materials.', RSC advances., 7 (78). pp. 49532-49535.


A truxene molecule incorporating a sulfur atom at one of the three bridgehead positions has been prepared through an efficient route, together with its oxidized analogue (featuring an SO2 unit) and brominated derivatives. The photophysical, electrochemical and thermal properties of the compounds are presented: the materials show high thermal stability and the ability to form amorphous glasses. This central monothiatruxene core offers multiple routes to further modifications, thereby opening a way to the synthesis of a variety of novel functional materials beyond the parent truxene.
