Embedding Boron and Nitrogen Atoms within Aromatic Molecules: From Reactive Intermediates to Nanographenes
Main list: EaStCHEM Colloquia
Substitution of CC units by BN is an attractive means of changing electronic properties of molecules. A case in point is the relationship between benzene and its inorganic analogue borazine, sometimes termed “inorganic benzene.” One of our research projects in Tübingen focuses on the experimental realization of reactive intermediates that are boron-nitrogen analogues of conventional organic reactive intermediates. In the presentation our recent results on 1,2-azaborines, the BN derivatives of benzynes, and how that research led to the borazine derivative of hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC), an iconic nanographene molecule, will be discussed.
