Abstract

5,5′-Bis[8-(2-thienyl)naphthalene-1-yl]-2,2′-bithiophene and 5,5″-bis[8-(2-thienyl)naphthalene-1-yl]-2,2′:5′,2″-terthiophene were synthesized starting from 1,8-di(2-thienyl)naphthalene and 5,5″′-bis[8-(5,2′-bithiophene-2-yl)-naphthalene-1-yl]-2,2′:5′,2″:5″,2″′-quaterthiophene from 1,8-bis(5,2′-bithiophene-2-yl)naphthalene to investigate intramolecular interactions among the three thiophene units that would be cofacially oriented each other in these molecules.
