Abstract: It is shown in this work that high electron affinity can be combined with high solubility and practical accessibility in corannulene-based electron acceptors. The electron affinity originates from the presence of three different types of electron-withdrawing groups (imide, sulfone, and trifluoromethyl) on the aromatic scaffold. The imide substituent further hosts a long alkyl chain (C18 H37 ) to boast solubility in a wide range of organic solvents. The synthesis is modular and consists of three simple steps from a commonly available corannulene derivative with an overall isolated yield of 22-27 %.
