      Abstract:

      The   synthesis and characterization of defined-length di- and trimeric   pentacenes and the corresponding polymers are described. The   synthesis is divergent from two common pentacene building blocks,   1 and 2, allowing for structural diversity. The resulting   materials are air stable and exhibit good solubility in common   organic solvents.
