Synthesis and Structure of a Longitudinally Twisted Hexacene

The addition of phenyllithium to a polycyclic quinone, 9,11,12,21,22,24‐hexaphenyltetrabenzo[a,c,n,p]hexacene‐10,23‐di‐one (10), followed by SnCl2‐mediated reduction of the diol intermediate, yielded 9,10,11,12,21,22,23,24‐octaphenyltetrabenzo‐[a,c,n,p]hexacene (4). Crystallographic analysis of hexacene 4 showed it to possess a longitudinal twist of 184°, which was in good agreement with AM1 calculations. In addition to being the most twisted acene synthesized to this point, compound 4 contains within its substructure the most twisted naphthalene, anthracene, tetracene, and pentacene moieties described.
