|Building Blocks for DNA Mimics|
Symmetrically substituted pyrene derivatives have been synthesized with tuned electronicproperties. Depending on the type of substituents, significant changes in the spectroscopicproperties of the polyaromatic compounds can be achieved. Such type of derivatives serveas valuable building blocks for DNA mimics.
