A Family of Heterocyclic Naphthalene Diimide (NDI) Analogues: Comparing Parent Isoquinoline Diimides and Phthalazine Diimides with NDI Academic Article uri icon


  • Parent isoquinoline diimide (IQDI) and phthalazine diimide (PTDI), as two new heterocyclic analogues of naphthalene diimides (NDIs), have been synthesized through an oxidative strategy in 35-79 % yield. X-ray crystallography has been used to support the formation of IQDI, which also show fluorescence quantum yields of 3.5 %. The electrochemical and electrical properties of these molecules have been studied. The electrochemical results show an interesting trend in first reduction potential PTDI
