Previously unstudied dibenzoindolo[3,2-b]carbazoles have been prepared by two-directional, phase tag-assisted synthesis utilizing a connective-Pummerer cyclization and a SmI2-mediated tag cleavage-cyclization cascade. The use of a phase tag allows us to exploit unstable intermediates that would otherwise need to be avoided. The novel materials were characterized by X-ray, cyclic voltammetry, UV-vis spectroscopy, TGA, and DSC. Preliminary studies on the performance of OFET devices are also described.
