Epub 2012 Aug 2.Perylene monoimide (PMI) was brominated to give tetra- and tribrominated molecules, which underwent a Suzuki coupling reaction with 4-(diphenylamino)phenylboronic acid to give PMI derivatives. The photophysical and electrochemical properties of the synthesized compounds were investigated, and theoretical calculations were performed. Single crystals of tetrasubstituted PMI were grown and studied in detail. Read More
