Abstract

Cyanated perylene-3,4-dicarboximides and perylene3,4:9,10-bis(dicarboximide)s absorb strongly in the visible spectrum and are strong oxidants. The stable radical anions of these molecules form reversibly and are also chromophores. These molecules significantly expand the library of perylene derivatives that can be employed as charge generators and carriers in molecular photonics and electronics applications, such as n-type organic semiconductors.
