Mechanochemical Transformation of Planar Polyarenes to Curved Fused-Ring Systems
Mihaiela Stuparu presents the synthesis of curved fused-ring structures.
Electronic and redox-active materials are revolutionizing key areas such as energy storage – for example in the form of rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors – or CO2 utilization and transformation. Among these functional materials, polyarenes and various forms of carbon polymers are of particular interest. The group of Professor Mihaiela Stuparu from the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) has been developing the chemistry and the applications of curved nanocarbons over the last decade. In this publication they describe the application of mechanochemistry to access curved aromatic structures.
