The synthesis of modular diquinolineanthracene and polydiquinolineanthracene derivatives are described. The reported facile and scalable aza-Diels-Alder-based approach requires mild conditions, proceeds in two steps, uses commercially-available starting materials, and accommodates varying functionalities. Given the known utility of the acene and quinoline motifs, our novel materials hold promise for organic electronics applications.
