  • Many optoelectronic organic materials are based on donor–acceptor (D–A) systems with heteroatom-containing electron donors. Herein, we introduce a new molecular design for all-carbon curved oligoparaphenylenes as donors, which results in the generation of unique shape-persistent D–A macrocycles. Two types of acceptor-inserted cycloparaphenylenes were synthesized. These macrocycles display positive solvatofluorochromic properties owing to their D–A characteristics, which were confirmed by theoretical and electrochemical studies.
