Hexaphenylbenzene is the core unit of novel organic materials and can be used for the synthesis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Controlled and selective functionalization of the hexaphenylbenzene scaffold with different structural units is of interest for tailoring the properties of these organic materials. The group of Professor Shuichi Hiraoka from The University of Tokyo (Japan) has recently reported a new and versatile approach for the preparation of C2v-symmetric hexaphenylbenzene derivatives.
