Lecture:Synthesis of Functionalized BN-Arenes

Title: Synthesis of Functionalized BN-Arenes

Speaker: Prof. Fang Xiangdong

Time: 2:00pm, December 6th, 2017

Venue: The Academic Hall on the second floor of Shi Xian Building 

Abstract of Lecture:

BN-Substituted arenes are formally considered as chemoisosteres of ubiquitous arene compounds. The CC/BN replacement in carbonaceous aromatic compounds generates interesting molecular structures inserted by BN dipole, which will provide organic materials with novel properties that can be tailor-made by choice. However, precision synthesis of BN-arenes poses significant challenges in synthetic organic chemistry, because most of BN-arene compounds remain elusive and their syntheses are unknown in the chemical literature. In this lecture, an efficient synthesis of BN-naphthalene (ABN) is disclosed and functionalizing ABN ring system leads to a variety of new BN-arene compounds that may find innovative applications in optoelectronics, functional materials and pharmaceutical chemistry.
