      In organic electronics, polyacenes have gained its attention to be a semiconductor due to its electronic properties. Increasing the length of the fused ring lowers the stability, therefore nitrogen atoms were introduced to the aromatic compound. In our research, synthesis of asymmetrical large pyrene-based organic semiconductor is studied.
