Versatile Applications of 1,2-Bis(pyren-2-yl)aromatics in the Synthesis of π-Expanded Molecules, ChemistrySelect, 10.1002/slct.201700152, 2, 16, 4343-4348, 2017.01, Thiophene-fused dinaphtho[8,1,2-opq:2′,1′,8′-uva]pentaphenes (DNPPs) were synthesized and characterized by using our previously reported strategy. The Suzuki-Miyaura coupling of the boronic acid ester of pyrene with dibromothiophenes, 2,3-dibromo- and 3,4-dibromothiophenes, afforded the corresponding bis(pyren-2-yl)thiophenes. The subsequent oxidation reaction afforded the desired π-expanded molecules. Reflecting the DNPP moieties, the obtained molecules show properties characteristic of π-expanded molecules, such as amphoteric multiredox behaviors and light absorption in the visible region. The oxidized product of 3,4-bis(pyren-2-yl)thiophene, which contains an ortho-quinoidal structure, i. e., benzo[c]thiophene, was isolated and spectroscopically characterized. Because these molecules possess the [5]helicene structure, optical resolution of enantiomers has been carried out using high-performance liquid chromatography..

An Isomer of Pyrene-Substituted Porphyrins, Synthesis, 10.1055/s-0036-1588715, 49, 10, 2182-2186, 2017.05, The Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction of pyren-2-yl boronic acid ester with a meso-dibromodiphenylporphyrin derivative was carried out to give another pyrene-substituted porphyrin. The electrophilic substitution reaction occurred selectively on the porphyrin nucleus of this molecule. The introduced pyrenes acted as a light-harvesting antenna..

Synthesis, Structure, and Photophysical Properties, Inorganic Chemistry, 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.7b02013, 56, 20, 12514-12519, 2017.10, Small molecules having intense luminescence properties are required to promote biological and organic material applications. We prepared five types of benzamides having pyridine, pyridazine, pyrazine, and pyrimidine rings and successfully converted them into three types of the difluoroboronated complexes, Py@BAs, as novel blue fluorophores. Py@BA having a pyridine moiety (2-Py@BA) showed no fluorescence in solution, whereas Py@BAs of pyridazine and pyrazine moieties (2,3-Py@BA and 2,5-Py@BA, respectively) emitted blue fluorescence with quantum yields of ca. 0.1. Transient absorption measurements using laser flash photolysis of the Py@BAs revealed the triplet formation of 2,3- and 2,5-Py@BAs, while little transient signal was observed for 2-Py@BA. Therefore, the deactivation processes from the lowest excited singlet state of fluorescent 2,3- and 2,5-Py@BAs consist of fluorescence and intersystem crossing to the triplet state while that of the nonfluorescent Py@BA is governed almost entirely by internal conversion to the ground state. Conversely, in the solid state, 2-Py@BA emitted intense fluorescence with a fluorescence quantum yield as high as 0.66, whereas 2,3- and 2,5-Py@BAs showed fluorescence with quantum yields of ca. 0.2. The crystal structure of 2-Py@BA took a herringbone packing motif, whereas those for 2,3- and 2,5-Py@BAs were two-dimensional sheetlike. On the basis of the difference in crystal structures, the emission mechanism in the solid state was discussed..
4. Ryotaro Fujii, Md Awlad Hossain, Hisato Akimoto, Kazunori Hirabayashi, Toshio Shimizu, Kazuhiko Akiyama, Kenta Goto, Hiroyuki Nishikawa, Ken Ichi Yamashita, Ken Ichi Sugiura, Synthesis of Tetra(3-thienyl)biphenoquinone and its Charge Transfer Complex with Perylene, Asian Journal of Organic Chemistry, 10.1002/ajoc.201700560, 7, 1, 171-178, 2018.01, Tetra(thienyl)biphenoquinones were designed and synthesized. An oxidative coupling of 2,6-bis(3-thienyl)phenol with PbO2 in acetic acid afforded the corresponding biphenoquinone along with 2,6-bis(3-thienyl)-p-benzoquinone. This biphenoquinone showed properties characteristic of a π-expanded quinone, that is, positively shifted reduction potential and light absorption in the visible region. In contrast to kinetically protected biphenoquinones with bulky substituents at the ortho-positions of carbonyls, the title compounds take a planar structure because of the small steric repulsion of the five-membered thiophene rings. Its charge transfer complex with perylene is characterized by a well-overlapped mixed stack..

They were successfully separated by chromatography, and characterized by NMR spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic analyses. The molecular structure of 2a was nonplanar due to the repulsion between the carbonyl group of the coumarin moiety and the methylene group at 9-position on the fluorene skeleton whilst that of 2b was planar. They showed different absorption and fluorescence features in solution whereas their spectral profiles of triplet–triplet absorption and phosphorescence were similar to each other..
