Cover Picture: The Rolling-Up of Oligophenylenes to Nanographenes by a HF-Zipping Approach (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 46/2017)
Ann-Kristin Steiner, Konstantin Y. Amsharov
The HF-zipping strategy allows an unprecedentedly challenging transformation to be performed. It consists of zipping virtually linear fluorinated oligophenylenes together to give preprogrammed nanographenes via domino-like cyclodehydrofluorination. In their Communication on page 14737 ff., A.-K. Steiner and K. Y. Amsharov demonstrate that fluorine positions in the precursor structure unambiguously dictate the running of the zipping program, leading exclusively to the atomically precise target nanographene.
