      Abstract:

      Unsymmetrically   functionalized pentacenes with electron-rich and/or -poor   substituents at the 6- and 13-positions were synthesized. The   electronic influence was evaluated by solution-state UV-vis   absorption and emission spectroscopies. These materials exhibit   good solubility in common organic solvents and are stable in the   presence of air and water.
