      Pentacene-based   polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) dyads are synthesized via   an unsymmetrical pentacene building block. These molecules   exhibit cofacial solid-state π-stacking as a result of the large   aromatic chromophores. The choice of the PAH attached to the   pentacene (see picture) influences the electronic properties as   determined by UV/Vis absorption/emission spectroscopy and cyclic   voltammetry.
